Lakehills Church Youth Performing Arts Group presents “Esther,” a youth Broadway-style musical suitable for the entire family.

“Esther,” music and lyrics by Marin Landry with book and lyrics by Janice Landry, is story of an orphaned Jewish girl who becomes Queen of Persia. She discovers that her people are to be annihilated by royal decree and is forced to trust God through frightening circumstances, with the survival of her entire race seemingly on her shoulders.

About 40 middle and high school youth make up the cast and crew. Becky Reilly is the producer with Kathy Kelleher as vocal director and Geri Connor as choreographer.

The show runs Jan. 31 through Feb. 2 and Feb. 7-8. Showtimes for this free musical are 7 p.m. on Fridays, 2 and 7 p.m. on Saturdays with special Act 1 only performances at 9 and 10:30 a.m. during Sunday services on Feb. 2. No reservations necessary. Lakehills Church is located at 7000 Rossmore Lane in El Dorado Hills, above the movie theaters and near Target.
