Walkin’ Wise Play

Back in 1988, when I first heard the Judy Rogers recording Walkin’ Wise, I was inspired to write a musical to go along with it. I obtained Judy’s permission to use her music and wrote my three act play. I showed it to many people and groups with none of them responding with much enthusiasm. So, I filed it away. Finally in 2003, after directing a Christmas program at the church we were attending, I decided to “resurrect” my play and see if I had any takers to perform it. The response was an overwhelming “yes,” and we proceeded to perform Walkin’ Wise on April 30th & May 1st of 2004. It is my hope that those who view it will see beyond our limted production resources and listen to the message of the play along with Judy Rogers’ wonderful music and lyrics.
