Life School Musical


“Show me how you work, God; School me in your ways. Take me by the hand; Lead me down the path of truth.” – Psalm 25:4-5 (The Message)

Life School Musical is a lively exploration for the keys to life. Unusual things happen on a Friday when John the Baptist, Simon Peter, the prodigal son and others turn up in the classroom to help in the search.


When Miss Knowsalot’s class at Life School begins on this particular Friday, the students have no idea what a special day it is destined to be! Ben, the new kid, and all the other students get the surprise of their life when colorful characters from the Bible materialize on the scene to truly bring their lessons to life.

While all they can think of when class starts is the impending weekend, by the end of this delightful romp they have come face to face with the life-changing power of the Gospel, and they’ve been handed the “keys to life” by some very special characters.

Erupting with some of the coolest music ever in a kids musical, Life School Musical will captivate your kids from the opening “drum-line” intro to the joyous curtain call. Not only will the music grab their attention, but the Biblical truths in the story can change their lives!
