Everything I Need to Know I Learned from Musical Theater

theatreWhen I saw the movie version of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s The King and I at the age of eleven, I was hooked for good on musical theater. I was enchanted by the music and entertained by the story, but most importantly I was transported into a world way beyond the insular homogenized environment of my North Shore upbringing. For sixty years, my love affair with musical theater has taught me some important lessons about the larger world I live in. During this service, I’ll share some of those insights with you as we enjoy some familiar and not-so- familiar songs from musical theater, performed by members of the Northshore Church singing group and two very special guest artists.
