Young, orphaned, and a refugee in a foreign land, the beautiful Esther lives a quiet life with her guardian Mordecai until Xerxes, the King of Persia, picks her as his new queen.
Becoming queen of Persia might seem like the opportunity of a lifetime, but for Esther it becomes a test of faith and fortitude as she realizes she must risk her life to save her people.
Beautifully orchestrated with touching lyrics, Esther "is a gift to both the audience and the cast."
