Welcome to

just pretend logo trans copyYou’ve found the website for a new musical written for Youth Sing Praise 2015 by the program’s music director Orin Johnson and its artistic director Bradley J. Behrmann.  The musical is based on the biblical story of Queen Esther, and is a full length 2-act show with score, libretto, and book, and had its world premiere on June 27, 2015 at the Amphitheater of the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Snows, Belleville, Illinois.

Some samples of the score, both audio and score, are available, as well as more information about the show, its authors, and some helpful learning tools for those preparing to perform it.  We also hope to make more samples and the show itself available to a broader population for possible performances very soon!

For now, please learn more about Youth Sing Praise here, and visit some of the various pages of our site.  If you wish to contact us, please use the link above. Come back soon!
