The Cultural Events Series at Frostburg State University will present the musical “Children’s Letters to God” on Tuesday, Nov. 1, at 7:30 in the Performing Arts Center’s Pealer Recital Hall.
"Dear God… Are you really invisible or is that just a trick?" "Dear God… How come you did all the miracles in the old days and you don't do any now?" "Dear God…It's great the way you always get the stars in the right places." Taken directly from the letters of young people, these are just some of the hard-hitting questions and tell-it-like-it-is revelations that make up “Children’s Letters to God,” the musical inspired by the international best-selling book. Humorous and serious, wise and naïve, simple and complex, “Children’s Letters to God” is a “whimsical and charming family-oriented production about the innocent joys of growing up,” says The New York Daily News. Stuart Hample, the creator of the best-selling book, has adapted his work from the page to the stage with music by David Evans (“Birds of Paradise”) and lyrics by Douglas J. Cohen (“No Way to Treat a Lady”).
When “Children’s Letters to God” opened Off-Broadway at The Lamb's Theatre, the critics were charmed, calling the show "an endearing, kid-friendly musical.”
This show is presented in partnership with FSU’s United Campus Ministry and Catholic Campus Ministry and is sponsored by Best Western – The Braddock, Belt Construction, Beitzel Corporation, Howell Trucking and The Oakland Republican.
