The story of Daniel in the Lion’s Den
March 19 at 8:00 and 10:30 worship hours.
Hosanna’s 2017 intergenerational musical, Rescue in the Night, is a light-hearted, but faithful rendition of the Biblical story of Daniel, a story of courage and obedience to God. The cast includes seven elementary-high school youth and eleven adults who portray these characters: Daniel, who is modest and sincere, the flamboyant King Darius and three conniving Advisors – Astrofar, the Royal Astrologer; Taxalot, the Keeper of the Vault; and Crushafo, the Captain of the Guard. Also important to the script, are the People of Babylon and of course, the hungry, man-eating beasts – the Lions. Join us as we unfold a tale of greed, jealousy and evil plotting for personal gain. Find out what happens when a royal decision has unexpected consequences. Share in the triumph of Daniel’s faithfulness to God and the miracle of his amazing rescue from the mouths of lions. The musical will be presented at both the 8:00 and 10:30am worship services on March 19 at Hosanna. The cast will go offsite for an outreach performance in the afternoon.
