Elisha-2008 - St John's - 6:30 pm, November 9, 2008

My favourite bit was when the people said 'bald head'. Very good show - a true blessing to all!

Added by James and Jenni

Wonderful presentation. Great reaching of young people. Would love to see presentation/seminar at our church if you're back in Sydney.

Added by Henry

Wow! I was blown away. It is brilliant. I so enjoyed the simplicity of just using the Scripture, using a few chairs and robes. It makes it all about the message. I hope you will return to Sydney soon. I want to see more!

Elisha-2008 - Sylvania Anglican - 8:00 pm, November 8, 2008

I really enjoyed it - Great work! One comment - the comedy angle may be a little out of place - it was serious business!

Added by Patricia

Presented really well. The visual aids help a lot, especially for the different Kings.

Added by Bojan

A bit violent! I wonder how the children might respond. Well done - enjoyable, will read it through again.

Elisha-2008 - Merricks Lodge - 10:00 am, November 4, 2008

That was great!!! I'm now on the mailing list - I want to know more.
Also, do you visit schools?

Added by Sam

Best one I've seen. Makes one want to read 1 Kings. Always thought the Old Testament was boring. Thank you.

Added by Sam

Well done! I really enjoyed it and will re-read Kings.

Added by Rosie

So simple, yet so profound. Very clear and inspiring. Thanks.

Added by Fiona

Great show! Well done. Any way the lighting can be placed so it doesn't get in the audience's eyes?

Added by Alex

Really enjoyed the way you brought all the actors in at the end for just those 2 scenes. It was good to have a bit of both ways.

Added by Sophie

Really enjoyable!! The Old Testament comes to life when it's told... it's original concept I think. Thank you!!

Added by Alison

Elisha-2008 - St Thomas' Burwood Anglican Church - Wattle Park - 7:30 pm, October 25, 2008

It was good! Thank you. I found the name 'Yahweh' a bit odd. I expected 'Lord'?

Added by Anonymous

Appreciated the combination of serious story and humerous asides. The subtle but effect lead into Jesus at the end was great for outsiders.

Elisha-2008 - St John's Highton (Geelong) - 8:00 pm, October 24, 2008

It was great! For the song at the end by James Brown you could use 'Get up off that Thing' by James Brown as it may even fit better.

Added by Sam

Thanks for a very informative, and enjoyable night. I learnt a great deal and look forward to your next production. Show was fantastic!!

Added by James

Added by Daniel

Fantastic - Really brought to life the story of Elisha - liked the use of powerpoint/screen to break up the story.

Added by Leona

Thanks heaps - another great show. We love having you here. A tiny suggestion: it would be great to put the first sentence under 'About the Show' in the program on the screen at the beginning - some people might not know and I think it adds to the power of the performance. ie 'The adventures of Elisha comes.... in the Bible...."

Added by Tim

Best thing I've ever seen. Better than any movie or show - sheer entertainment yet more powerful because you know it's real history that changed everything!

Added by Pamela

It's very great! I like it! Keep on it!

Really very excellent! Loved the limited use of props and costumes - this added rather than took away. I wish I would have seen Elijah - can you let me know if it comes back?
