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 following 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 being unathletic and first love. This family-friendly, feel good show is a reflection of all the questions that kids have for the Big Guy. It will make you remember yourself as an inquisitive kid while perhaps bringing a tear to your eye and definitely a smile to your face.
