We're off to a new season of Raise Your Spirits. It's our 11th year of raising spirits throughout Israel. And this year we're presenting our first original musical, created exactly ten years ago - ESTHER and the Secrets in the King's Court.
ESTHER was a spectacular success a decade ago, and we're expecting great things from her now, ten years later. With a new cast and crew, new musical arrangements, new choreography and new staging ideas, ESTHER is going to bring tremendous excitement to the Gush Etzion stage, as well as other locations in Israel, IY"H.
Emails abound, getting the cast ready for a summer of rehearsals and humongous excitement is in the air.
ESTHER was written by Arlene Chertoff, Toby Klein Greenwald and Sharon Katz with music composed by Rivka Hattin Epstein. This year's production includes musical arrangements by Amit Ben Atar, Paul Salter and Mitch Clyman. Direction by Toby Klein Greenwald, music direction by Gayle Berman and choreography by Sarah Orenstein.
More news to come as we head off to Shushan!
