A musical co-written by worship leader and recording artist Justin Rizzo, this latest Forerunner Arts’ original production is based on the account of Noah and the flood in the book of Genesis, but from a different angle, and for a different purpose.
The musical brings application of the events of the days of Noah to today, and subsequently, the events in the days ahead.
The storyline follows the lives of four individuals, tossed about by trouble and conflict, each faced with a choice. Through their stories, we see the struggles and temptations that have touched every generation, the longings of each man’s heart, and the purpose for which we live.
“Our hope is that each person that sees the show will be able to relate to the journeys of the characters and the trials they face,” Rizzo says. “As well as walk away seeing how the account of Noah plays a role in their own lives and futures.”
