Youth Musical (Sonshine Productions)

“Spark from the Ashes”

Sonshine Productions youth choir produces original Broadway-style musicals that are based on both Old and New Testament stories. Full costuming, props, lighting and sound, along with an exciting contemporary musical score help bring these biblical texts to life.

There is no ticket cost; however, monetary donations will be accepted following the show. Several of our Hilliard UMC youth have participated in these shows, based out of Bethel International UMC.

Spark From the Ashes is the story of a Jewish priest named Jairus who risks his reputation and position to ask a traveling preacher named Jesus to heal his dying daughter. It is a story of faith and trust and, ultimately, the goodness of God. The musical was written by Kurt Fox, a Columbus native and English teacher at Olentangy High School. The script was written in response to the author’s own struggle with his father’s untimely death from cancer. The musical score was composed by Sonshine founder and director, Mark Fox. (from
