EstherFor Such A Time As This
Esther Returns to the Stage!
An encore presentation of Esther: For Such a Time as This returns to the Groton-Dunstable Performing Arts Center (located at the Groton-Dunstable Middle School), 344 Main St, Groton, MA on April 17-26.
“Esther” is the story of a girl with two names; one hidden.
The story of two kings; one hidden.
A story of two decrees: one to destroy a people, the other to save a people.
That which is hidden comes to light in this new musical adaptation of the Biblical story of a Jewish orphan who becomes Queen to the Persian Emperor, King Ahasuerus (Xerxes) at a time when his reign has become plagued with political intrigue, plots of sabotage and genocide that threaten the unity of the Empire.
In September 2019 a company of 80 actors, singers, and dancers with a live orchestra transported audiences to the magnificent winter palace of King Ahasuerus in the 5th century BC Persian capital city of Susa. “Esther: For Such A Time As This” played to full audiences with standing ovations at every show! Soli Deo Gloria!
