Youth at Salem Lutheran Church in Sycamore are rehearsing a song about plagues of frogs, flies and sick cows sent to change the Pharaoh’s mind and earn the release of the Hebrew people. The group will give two musical performances this weekend.

“Are We There Yet?” tells the story of Moses and the Exodus for two Salem Lutheran Church worship services this weekend.

Presented by Salem Sunday School youth and Creative Arts Ministry, the musical by Tom Long and Allen Pote will be the message in song for the 5 p.m. Saturday and 10:30 a.m. Sunday services. 

Moses is portrayed by Aiden Zibrun, Miriam by Sabrina Ezell, Pharaoh by Damon Olson, Aaron by Kimmie Hohlfeld, Joshua by Kellie Hohlfeld, Moses’ mother by Lily Polke, Pharoah’s daughter by Finley Jackson, Pharoah’s magicians by Michael and Sam Jaros, and Hebrew people by Krista Cobb, Lila Ezell and Sydney Polke.

Song titles include “Down in Egypt’s Land,” “The Whining Song,” “The Burning Bush,” “The Ten Commandments,” “The Ten Plagues,”  “A Golden Calf,” “The Red Sea Crossing,”  “Prayer of Moses,” “Song at the Seaside” and “The Promised Land.”  

The set design was created by George Jaros, a women’s chorus accompanies the children, and the musical is directed by Carla Vanatta, Associate in Ministry.

All are welcome. Salem is a congregation of the ELCA located at 1145 DeKalb Ave., Sycamore.
