This musical tells the story of the Hebrews' release from Israel and their journey to the Promised Land. They battle the ten plagues, part the Red Sea, and build the Golden Calf.
Fifth grade and sixth grade students play the major roles of Moses, Miriam, Aaron, and the Pharaoh.
"This has been a challenging production, but well worth the work with a combination of entertainment and telling the story of Moses," said Director Kelley Fog.
