This month, we are taking you behind the scenes of Esther: A Musical Adventure!
That's right—we're pulling back the curtain to give you an inside look at Base Camp's newest musical. The story of Esther is all about how God is up to something, and we can choose to be a part of it. It has everything a great story needs: Secrets! Suspense! Comedy! Drama!
In this first part of our series, you'll find out why we decided to turn the book of Esther into a musical. You'll also meet the four lead actors of the show. They'll introduce you to their characters and give you some fun facts about them. There's Esther, a Jewish girl who reluctantly became queen of Persia; Mordecai, Esther's cousin and resident spy; Xerxes, the king of Persia and… amateur magician? (we'll explain!); and of course—because every story needs a foil—the villainous Haman.
But wait… there's actually a fifth character whose name is never mentioned in the book of Esther. Can you guess who it might be? You'll have to watch to see if you're correct!
