John 16:33b "In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world."
The story begins with all the kids singing an energetic, contemporary song entitled "Life Is Good", when a young heckler decides to interrupt the performance, saying life isn't always so good.
With a wacky computer to aid them, and a Bible written in rhyme, the kids visit Eden to find where all the trouble began. Bible characters such as Jonah, Noah, Job, David and many others are brought to life in fun songs and dramatic sketches, and when the kids discover the real joy of the Lord, they finally agree that "Life is Good!"
With many dramatic roles and pantomime parts, diverse musical styles and lots of humor, this musical has become a favorite for kids and adults alike.
