The Ten Virgins - A Musical Parable

I've been asked to direct a spiritual musical called "The Ten Virgins," based on the parable by the same name. It follows the stories of 10 women who've each received a lamp created personally for them. Each woman was instructed by the shopkeeper to return frequently for oil. The women get to sing beautiful songs telling their stories of why the did or did not refill their oil. Of course, there is the scene when the bridegroom comes and only the wise virgins are allowed to attend the wedding.

Our Relief Society is doing this combined with another ward. Since I don't know the sisters in the other ward, I'm holding auditions this Saturday. I hope that a lot of women are interested in participating. I think it is going to be really fun. There is a lady who is going to be making costumes and everything. I know it is going to be a lot of work, but I really hope we will bring a strong spirit to the enrichment meeting in April.
