An original folk musical from Theatre of the Beat!
Selah’s Song! Written by Johnny Wideman, with original music by beloved Mennonite musician Bryan Moyer Suderman, Selah’s Song tells the story of a young girl whose courage inspired a village and whose song became an anthem for peace. Inundated with catchy pro-war propaganda songs, Selah is inspired to share her own music with the village, creating some competition
for the King. Selah’s Song is a heartwarming musical that is fun for all ages!
Selah’s Song was presented at East Zorra Mennonite Church on Sunday, December 4th at 2:30PM. It was an excellent performance!

Selah’s Song was created with an incredible creative team including Director Erin Brandenburg, Designers Ian Garrett, Kristine White, and Camila Farah, and Production Manager Cedric Martin, and with an all star cast including Malia Rogers, Sara Jarvie-Clark, Christina Leonard, and Zach Parsons.
Selah’s Song was commissioned and produced by Community Mennonite Church Stouffville in partnership with Nineteen on the Park Theatre in January 2014 as a community outreach event. Originally conceived as a 40-person musical, Theatre of the Beat is now revisiting it as a four-person show with puppets that can
tour across Canada.
