It’s time for the Hexagon Players of Mendham Fall 2008 performance, and this year, they’re presenting Children’s Letters to God.  It’s a musical based on the internationally best-selling book by Stuart Hample and Eric Marshall, with music by David Evans and lyrics by Douglas J. Cohen.

Taken directly from the letters of young people writing to “the Big G,” Children’s Letters to God promises to be great family fun. I doubt that we’ll receive the answers, but the questions include gem like “Dear God. How did you know you were God?” “Dear God. Are you really invisible or is that just a trick?” and “Dear God. How come you did all the miracles in the old days and you don’t do any now?”

The Hexagon Players come highly recommended by London and Maddie, my little Broadway wannabees, who have toyed with the idea of trying out for a role each time we’ve seen one of their performances, but our girls just couldn’t make the kind of time commitment required by the serious acting group.  We enjoyed the Sound of Music a couple of years back, and just last spring we were quite impressed with the Hexagon Players’ flying rendition of Peter Pan, presented at the Delbarton School.

Children’s Letters to God Performances are scheduled for Friday, November 7th at 8:00pm; Saturday, November 8th at 2:00pm and 8:00pm; Sunday, November 9th at 2:00pm; Friday, November 14th at 8:00pm; and Saturday, November 15th at 2:00pm and 8:00pm.  There’s also a special performance just for Girl Scouts and their families on Wednesday, November 12th at 7:00pm.  Ask your troop leader or contact Roxy for more information.

The production will be performed at the Hexagon Theater at the Grace Lutheran Church, 65 East Main Street (by West Morris Mendham High School) in Mendham, New Jersey. The Hexagon Players shows always sell out quickly, so be sure to purchase your tickets online, or call the box office at (973) 543-8770.
