Princeton Bible Church Choir, directed by Marty Kiser, will present the Easter dramatic musical, “Bow the Knee” at 10:15 a.m., Palm Sunday, April 5 and also at 6:30 p.m., Good Friday, April 10. The musical was written by Chris Machen and published by Lillenas Publishing Company.
The story is set in Jerusalem where Jewish reverence for Caesar is strictly enforced by the Roman legions patrolling the area. The Roman Centurion, Anthony, played by Tom Odell, is in charge of keeping the Roman laws, and yet is forced to make a life-changing choice when he is confronted with Jesus, played by Rob Jensen.
Persuaded by his servants, Eli and Benjamin, both of whom have become followers of Jesus, to at least come and see this Christ, Anthony soon is faced with choosing to serve Caesar or the living God. The choice is magnified when Anthony is assigned to scourge and crucify this Jesus whose miracles of healing he has witnessed. To whom will he bow his knee?
The production involves a 25 voice choir, some children and several other actors including Roman guards, Caiaphas the high priest, Pilate, Judas, Peter, Mary Magdalene. The entire choir is costumed and dramatizes the crowd scenes for the production.
The public is invited to the performances. Admission is free.
