This April 2020 New Life Fine Arts Musical Theater presents an original musical adaptation “Esther: For Such A Time As This” at the Groton Dunstable Performing Arts Center, 344 Main St. Groton, MA. (Use 343 Main St for GPS directions)

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.

A company of 80 actors, singers, and dancers with a live orchestra will transport audiences to the magnificent winter palace of King Ahasuerus in the 5th century BC Persian capital city of Susa.

Evenings at 7:30 p.m. April 17,18, 24,25
Matinees at 2:30 p.m. April. 18,19, 25, 26
