Fully aware of the rising costs of musical production I have written a piece that can be staged both inexpensively and unpretentiously without sacrificing any of its artistic merit. The musical is called DAVID based upon the life of the well-known biblical figure from his days as a young shepherd boy to his ascension as King of Israel.
DAVID is very versatile. Sets and costumes need not be elaborate, cast size can be kept relatively small, and the orchestration is not needlessly complex. The show is approximately 1 1/2 to 2 hours long.
DAVID can appeal to different types of audiences. Children and young people, for instance, would especially enjoy David’s fight with Goliath and Freedom! which immediately follows, as well as various military marches and battle scenes. Adults could appreciate the poignancy of David’s relationship with Jonathan and its tragic consequences. And, of course, many would delight in a musical rendition of this popular biblical story.
I hope you will take the time to examine the work carefully. Within the LIBRETTO are samples of some of the music as well as the orchestrated accompaniments for Freedom!, Oh How Proud We Are! , and I Thank Him.
