Important Note: When our musical scripts were first written, the choral and accompaniment music for which they were written were current and available. But Christian music literature has a brief shelf life; it goes out of print quickly. (We do not compose music, but write dramatic scripts that work with existing published music literature.)
Rather than remove our scripts because the associated music literature may no longer be available, we have opted to give our users the opportunity to either locate the original music on their own, or substitute music of their own choosing.
Do not plan on using one of our musical scripts until you have made this decision.
The information below includes everything we know about the music literature originally used for this musical. Nothing is gained by writing us for more.

Peter and his son are on an outing, spending some time together during a rare break in the apostle's ministry. Joash has high hopes to grow up just like his famous father. Peter takes the opportunity to teach his son some humility by sharing with him the humility and sacrifice of Christ. In a powerful scene, Peter relives the shame of his denial.
Jesus Shall Reign is a worship-oriented musical with a strong dramatic element. The drama portion of this musical could almost be lifted out to stand on its own as a one-act play. The package is a powerful statement of the Lordship of Jesus Christ, and appropriate for Easter or as a general musical. The dramatic dialogue is woven artfully through the music--one element complementing the other, and there are moments of congregational response.
