2011 GMA Dove Award Finalist for Best Musical!
Lift the hearts of your congregation with "What's Up, Zak?" A Musical Encounter with Jesus. The familiar tale of Zacchaeus is relived as one rich but lonely tax collector casts his ego aside and climbs a tree for just one glimpse of the Savior. Funny, lively songs introduce a town bustling to prepare for a visit from a V.I.P. - Very Important Prophet! The leaders of Jericho decide to throw a parade to welcome Jesus. But the people who need love the most, the lowly beggars and the tax collectors, are not invited to the party. Your young singers will explore how special Bartimaeus and Zacchaeus must have felt to learn that Jesus saw them and loved them just the way they were! A wonderful story for believers of all ages.
From Open Heart Musicals.
