WTG Announces Production of CHILDREN'S LETTERS TO GOD

Based on the international best-selling book by Stuart Hample and Eric Marshall, and inspired by the international bestseller of the same name, Children's Letters To God is a musical that follows the lives of five young friends as they voice beliefs, desires, questions and doubts common to all people but most disarmingly expressed by children. Sixteen tuneful songs and assorted scenes (some based on actual letters) explore timeless issues such as sibling rivalry, divorce, holidays, loss of a beloved pet, the trials of not being athletic, and first love. As in the best-selling book, the musical is not specifically religious in nature. It's about kids and various events in their lives that lead them to ask a lot of questions -- some funny, some serious, some surprising.

This production is the first all child main stage show in the WTG's history. Cast members range in age from 9-14 years old. Director Pam Pellegrine says, "This show is for adults and children alike, because whatever your age, faith, belief, background you've probably asked some higher power questions when life doesn't make sense. And in the beginning----before GOOGLE and AskJeeves, for many of us that higher power is God."
