A Day, a Night and a Day • The Musical

Book and Lyrics by Doug Stewart

Music by William Marsden

(Can be produced by Professionals, LDS Church Groups, Community Groups and College/University Groups.)

The Birth of Christ announced in the New World, to the Nephites and Lamanites. In a society where it was not popular, profitable or safe to be a Believer, The Children of Christ await the signs promised by Samuel, The Lamanite. The leaders have waited five long years to execute and rid themselves of the Believers who await the predicted sign surrounding the birth of Jesus Christ, a time when they anticipate “a day, a night and a day” of daylight, with no darkness. Soon, there will be no excuse not to execute the Believers. With a powerful contemporary score this show will dazzle your audience and move them with the powerful validation of testimony, faith and belief.
