TO THE RESCUE - a new Christian musical#1
Posted: 1/21/08 at 1:03pm
Hi! I hope that everyone will allow for some shameless self-promotion. I wanted to share some (hopefully exciting) news with you all. My brother David and I have recently finished writing a new musical entitled TO THE RESCUE. The piano and vocal arrangements are being completed currently, and the work will be ready for licensing and staging in April. The website for the show is now active and be viewed at:

http://www.christianmusical.net/

THE THE RESCUE is a Christian musical primarily intended to be performed by churches for their congregations. However, we also wrote it as a theatrical piece appropriate for a theater production as well.

At least for now, we've made the controversial decision to include on the website the option of viewing the entire script. We also offer samples of the music from the rough composer demo so you can get an idea of the type of music contained in the show.

The show will have its world premiere sometime and somewhere in 2008. I welcome any feedback on either the show or the script.

So you peaked my interest and I took a look at the script.

If you want any serious consideration from the theatre community, you'll want to reformat the entire script in standard format.

Besides countless books, a simplified version can be found here:

Thanks for your feedback. At the time that we were finalizing the script (as if a new show script is ever final), we did lots of research on what a "standard format" was for a musical and found numerous sources, none of which seemed consistent at all. Some had the character names to the left, and some had them centered. Same thing with CAPS or no CAPS on song lyrics. So, I chose a format found in a published script for a Tony-Award winning musical and went with it.
