Terror Texts the Musical

terror text the play

The most grisly verses have been collected from the King James Bible and made into a musical directed by Jeff Barker with music by Joseph Barker and Heather Josselyn-Cranson.

Barker explains,
These mysterious, dark stories of the Old Testament, they bring us face-to-face with the suffering of the world. It says we are capable of great evil and we must not forget these stories and we have some serious things to be accountable for in our own lives as a group and individually.

If we can perform it as a work of art, believing that it is artistic and it's an artistic genre that has a tremendous artistic power, that people will be drawn back to it in new and renewing ways that would be valuable to them whether they consider themselves a religious person or not.
The show was originally produced by the Northwestern College Theatre Department in February of 2008.
