Productions Delivers "Children's Letters to God" to Kelsey Theatre

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

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.
