'Let There Be Light' - The Musical

“Let there be Light!” on tour.


The young people of St Mary's (Wing and a Prayer youth theatre company), have been travelling around the county of Essex during 2019, taking out their show "Let there be Light - the musical".

You may have caught them at these venues;

Saturday 16th February – St. Andrew’s Church, Halstead

Saturday 9th March – St. Stephen’s, Colchester

Saturday 16th March – St. Peter’s (Lifestreams) Church, Southend

Saturday 14th September – The Cramphorn theatre, Chelmsford


We loved meeting up with the churches on our travels and working with all the people who helped us put on these shows, to whom we're really grateful.  It was also a great experience performing at Chelmsford's Cramphorn theatre and on all these occasions we want to thank all the people who came along to watch us.


Hopefully some of these pictures will bring back happy memories and if you couldn't make it, will give a taste of what the show is all about!

(With thanks to Ellie Bond for these pictures.)

As for the future....we shall see, but if any group would be interested in knowing more with a view to mounting their own production of "Let there be Light", we would be delighted to hear from you.

Once again, we extend our huge thanks to everyone who has helped us in any way to getting this show on the road and especially to so many from our church home here at St. Mary's.

The group have also recorded a CD of the show. If you'd like a copy, they cost £10.00 each or 2 for £15.00. For that you get a double CD and two and a half hours of music, recorded at a nearby local recording studio, AT Music group studios. To order any copies please email Mark Brown on:  markjotardis@yahoo.co.uk
