This absolutely delightful one-act play, debuted at the 1990 NPM convention in Long Beach, is easily performed by any parish. Two main characters, the "storytellers," retell familiar stories of salvation—creation, Job, Jesus—in musical renditions. Adult and children's choruses listen and respond in song and dance, bringing to life the timeless stories of our faith, passed on from generation to generation.
In addition to Marty's original texts and tunes, he also incorporates two songs by Donna Peña: "I Say Yes, Lord" and "Against the Grain," the Swedish carol "Many Are the Lightbeams,' and a new setting of the now classic Fred Pratt Green text, " When in Our Music God Is Glorified." Most titles may be used separately for liturgy and many are ideal for catechists.
