Herbert W. Armstrong College announces its fourth musical theater production, ‘The Widow’s Might —The Story of Naomi, Ruth and Boaz.’ The production will make its debut at Armstrong Auditorium in three performances; at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 29, at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 31, and at 2 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 1.
In this new musical by Armstrong College music director Ryan Malone, one of the most renowned love stories of all time comes to life from the book of Ruth. Follow Naomi and Ruth — two impoverished widows — on their journey as they discover loyalty and love, rescue and redemption. With a lyrical and heart-rending new score, breathtaking step-dancing choreography and brilliantly colored costumes, a 100-strong cast brings this adventure to life in dramatic detail.
Great-grandparents to King David of the Bible, Boaz and Ruth remain the most distinguished royal family of the Old Testament. The hope-filled story comes to vivid life in this new musical – performed by staff and students of Herbert W. Armstrong College teaming up with its sister school Imperial Academy and its internationally acclaimed Irish dancers…”
From a PCG source:
It has been a little over a month now and it is apparent that this musical was a very big flop with the local Edmond Population. Some say it is the disturbing rumors of child/spouse abuse that has leaked out of the Flurry Cult Compound. Others attribute the embarrassing crash and burn to the prosaic and bland overall presentation of this pretentious musical dud. Think of "High School Musical" performed by the Amish.
When the Cult Musical Virtuoso Ryan Malone has his great Magnum Opus staged by untalented, average looking, average gifted wives of ministers, kids of ministers, Flurry family brown nosers, and other Cult lackeys - what do you expect. This ain't going to be like "Hamilton" folks.
Gerald Flurry bankrolled and underwrote this latest attempt by the PCG to look professional and legitimate to the surrounded Edmond OK populace. With the PCG subsidizing the admission cost all tickets were $10 for adults and even less for children. However this generous cut rate entrance fee failed miserably to jump start this Musical Abomination into the hearts and minds of the public. The most devoted ticket purchasers were..you guessed it....local and out of town PCG members. Those PCG zombies just can't get enough of the Riverdancing Flurry Grand children.
It is pretty pathetic that you can't even con church members, employees and students to fill up the building, let alone the public!
Hundreds of thousands of dollars in tithe money have been wasted on these amateur productions, all to please the elite of the Philadelphia Church of God so that the Flurry grand kids can Irish dance. I bet PCG members never thought they would be financing buildings for the exclusive use of Flurry's grand kids so they can dance jigs. Irish dance is a major way of spreading the gospel brethren! Jesus danced a jig right before he fed the 5,000!
