Malice in the Palace by Allen Pote. For unison/2-part youth choir. Musicals. Youth Musicals. Youth, Children, General, Sacred. Score. 70 pages. Published by Hope Publishing Company (HP.8181).
Allen Pote and Tom Long's musical for young voices tells the story of Esther with its powerful message that the smallest person acting bravely can make an enormous difference, and that God has placed us where we are for a reason. This 45-minute program is filled with humor, pathos and inspiring music. A minimum of costumes, props and scenery are required. Mark Kellner's upbeat, contemporary sounding accompaniment track is sure to delight young performers and audiences alike.
