My Turn On Earth is an LDS musical written in 1977 by Carol Lynn Pearson and Lex de Azevedo. The plot is based on the LDS concept of the Plan of Salvation, and includes fictionalized scenes from the pre-mortal existence and the war in heaven. The main character is a young woman named Barbara who leaves the pre-existence and comes to Earth in search of life's treasure. Along the way, she learns essential Gospel lessons, including the value of free agency, repentance, and the Golden Rule.
My son Edward Dakota will be directing and performing My Turn On Earth as a mission fundraiser. He obtained the rights from Deseret Book and made arrangements to rent the Bing Crosby Theater for a day. As a father, I am constantly amazed by his talent and confidence.
The show will run one night only on July 22, 2013 at 7:00 pm at the Bing Crosby Theater in Spokane, WA. Tickets can be pre-ordered by calling (509) 599-5572. Advance tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for seniors and children. All tickets are $12 at the door.
