Daniel • the Musical

Daniel • the Musical

The Musical based on the Bible story (like it’s never been told before!)

Book and Lyrics by R. Rex Stephenson

Music and Lyrics by C. Michael Perry

(For production by Professional Groups, College/University Groups, Community Groups, High Schools, LDS & Other Church Groups, Youth Theatres)

The story of the faithfulness of Daniel and his “brothers” has inspired generations. While this is a comedy at heart, it is filled with faith and hope and inspiration as we see the examples of dedication to God. We see the change of heart as a King unburdens himself to the Most High God. We witness the writing on the wall, we visit the Fiery Furnace and the Den of Lions with the cutest little lions ever. The music covers a wide range of styles and will help this show entertain any family audience.

Designed for an Inter-generational cast of actors from eight to eighty, this is a great Church and Community Group show.
