Liberty Jail • Original Cast CD

A Musical

The Original Cast Album
by Orson Scott Card
Music by C. Michael Perry

At the end of the persecutions of the Mormons in Missouri, Joseph Smith, Hyrum Smith, Sidney Rigdon and three others were imprisoned in a jail at Liberty, Missouri. The conflicts that arose there and the friendships that were formed shaped the future history of the Mormon Church — and also brought to Mormon Scripture the beautiful and poetic Section 121 of the Doctrine and Covenants. This musical drama will have your audience totally involved with beautiful music, a deeply moving story and a variety of characters. It will be seen that there sometimes, for a Prophet of God, can be liberty in jail.
