“God Lives In Glass” On Stage at CSN Oct. 24-25

September 24, 2009 by  

God Lives In Glass
A new musical, “God Lives in Glass,” composed by “Jersey Boys” conductor Keith Thompson will be presented Oct. 24 and 25 at the College of Southern Nevada’s Performing Arts Center.  The unique performances will be held at 1 p.m. each day in the Nicholas J. Horn Theatre, on the Cheyenne Campus, 3200 E. Cheyenne Ave.

“God Lives in Glass” is based on the book by Robert J. Landy, a New York professor who interviewed children worldwide in 2001 about their perceptions of God. The theatrical concert will be performed by 55-60 singers and musicians who work in shows on the Las Vegas Strip.

Sixteen songs from pop to gospel to reggae to rap represent diverse faiths from around the world. Local pianist Philip Fortenberry provides musical accompaniment, along with a 10-piece band. The CSN Performing Arts Center and Family Promise of Las Vegas have partnered to present the show, which is a benefit for each organization and includes a silent auction.

The show’s producer and Family Promise board member, Bruce Ewing notes, “The response we’ve received from the singers and musicians from the Las Vegas shows—“Jersey Boys,” “Phantom,” “Lion King” and “Love”–has been phenomenal. Because the event benefits such worthwhile causes, everyone has been very generous with their time and talent.”

Family Promise is a non-profit organization that assists homeless families in the Las Vegas valley to achieve lasting independence by helping the community mobilize to provide safe shelter, meals, and support services for them. The Performing Arts Center’s share of the proceeds will go to its “Friends of the Horn,” which is used to enhance productions by bringing in guest artists and more diverse programming for the students and the community.

“We appreciate CSN’s willingness to host this event,” says Ewing. “Both of our organizations share the mission of a desire to build a stronger community and improve the quality of life for residents of southern Nevada.”

Tickets are $25 for adults and $20 for seniors/students and include a post-show reception with the performers. Call the CSN Box Office at 651-LIVE (5483) for reservations or visit www.csn.edu/pac or www.familypromiselv.com
