DARING Youth Choir takes the musical “Exodus from Egypt County” on tour in Allen, Texas, on June 12-19, 2021. It is a local tour with one stop away from our church and two final shows at our church.
DARING’s homecoming performances is Friday and Saturday, June 18 & 19, in the FUMC Allen sanctuary at 7:00pm. We are pleased to announce that the Saturday night performance will be available live stream!
The musical is about Moses set in the Old West hence the name “Exodus from Egypt County.” In telling the story in a different setting, it still stays true to the Biblical account. The music is very enjoyable and is accompanied by an eight- piece ensemble.
We are providing a tour of sorts for our participants with rehearsals, fun events, devotionals and meals. Part of our week includes travelling out and back in a day to Blue Mound UMC to do a show for their congregation. They will unload at the church, do the setup, eat lunch, have a rehearsal, eat supper, share the musical, strike set, load the truck, travel back to Allen and unload the truck. This is a day not unlike a day on choir tour.
Some of the other activities are watching a movie night on June 13 and spending a day at Six Flags on June 15.
The DARING Youth Music Ministry program at FUMC Allen includes opportunities for vocal performance, acting, choir, orchestra, and tech. With these multiple ways to participate in the performing arts, the number of youth who can be reached is much greater than if we just had a choir.
On our tour, we present a Broadway style full-length musical to share stories of our faith with audiences and congregations.
