Maurer Productions Delivers "Children's Letters to God" to Kelsey Theatre Jan. 8-17


West Windsor, NJ -- Dear God, Are you really invisible or is that just a trick? How did you know you were God? These questions and more will be explored in a conversation both whimsical and earnest when Maurer Productions OnStage presents the family musical, "Children's Letters to God," at Mercer County Community College's Kelsey Theatre. Performances take place Fridays and Saturdays, Jan. 8 and 15 at 7 p.m.; Saturdays, Jan. 9 and 16 at 2 and 7 p.m.; and Sundays, January 10 and 17 at 2 p.m. Kelsey Theatre is located on the college's West Windsor campus at 1200 Old Trenton Road.

Based on Stuart Hample's international best-selling book, this charming show reveals what's on the minds of five inquisitive young friends who voice their beliefs, desires, and doubts to the "Big Guy" upstairs. An energetic score of catchy melodies and dance illuminates such trying issues as sibling rivalry, divorce, the loss of a beloved pet, the trials of not being athletic, and the pangs of first love. The show's universal messages transcend the boundaries of age, geography, and religion.

Young cast members include, front row, from left, Kiernan Matts Jeremy Barson, and Amy Slothower; middle row, center, Dominick Sannelli and Victoria Scialfa; top row, from left, Kirsten Pasewaldt, Claire Norden, David Catalano, Matthew Blazejewski, and Gabriella Green.
