Women Who Dare To Believe!

Two veteran actresses bring to life 21 women from the Scriptures!

Bonnie Keen and Nan Gurley portray the women God used to fulfill the covenant and bring in the Messiah. With cutting-edge dialogue, original music and creative interaction with the audience, this 90-minute musical will inspire viewers with the stories of women who dared to believe and pushed against the pressures and culture of their day. The scarlet thread of hope runs through the stories of Rahab, Tamar, Leah and Rachel, Deborah and Esther, Anna and Mary. Like women today, these women knew this was their hour, this was their moment. On a bare stage, two women using 20 feet of scarlet fabric leave audiences breathless with the stories of the blood of Jesus running through time from the Garden to the empty tomb.



Have you ever wondered what the artists were thinking as they developed a performance or have questions about a particular scene?  Join Andrea as she moderates an informal Chat with Bonnie and Nan including questions from the audience.  There will be a brief 10 minute intermission following the performance to allow Nan and Bonnie to refresh.



Join Bonnie and Nan as they take the title of the musical and break it down in slow motion using examples from the Word:

Women - Yes we are women made in God's image and design (in light of our culture's narrative about women and their roles).

Who Dare - What are we daring, how are we challenged, what's the risk and call.

To Believe - In what are we placing our trust, our self-image, our worth, how are we living out faith in Jesus.
