Holy Moses!


Bob Kolsby & Sean Hartley

Published by Dramatic Publishing

This upbeat, funny and tuneful one-act musical tells of the story of Moses in his teenage years

Despite "leading the normal life of a Pharaoh-in-waiting" (i.e. diction lessons, slave management and going to all the palace balls), Moses knows that Pharoah's daughter is not his real mother

But it is only when he meets Miriam, a wacky, clairvoyant Hebrew slave, that he learns of his true identity

After killing the slave-driver Tinactin, Moses goes into hiding (taking the name Charlton Heston) but eventually returns to Egypt to lead the Jewish people to freedom. Contemporary, off-the-wall humor and a dynamic score give this familiar story a refreshing new spin

Simple staging. Cast - 4 to 10 or more
