What's Up, Zak?

From Open Heart Musicals

by Kim Ingram and Joe Milton

Lift the hearts of your congregation with What’s Up, Zak?, a fun and heartwarming exploration of the Bible story. The familiar tale of Zacchaeus is relived as one rich but lonely tax collector casts ego aside and climbs a tree for just one glimpse of Jesus. Funny, lively songs introduce a town bustling to prepare for a visit from a V.I.P. - Very Important Prophet! The leaders of Jericho decide to throw a parade to welcome Jesus. But the people who need love the most, the lowly beggars and the tax collectors, are not invited to the party. Your young singers will explore how special Bartimaeus and Zacchaeus must have felt to discover that Jesus saw them, and loved them just the way they were! A wonderful story for believers of all ages. A 2011 GMA Dove Award Finalist.

What’s Up, Zak? has flexibility written into the script, with options for adding characters and multi-generational options. Performed as written, the show runs 42 minutes.

Downloadable Teacher Resource Kit (TRK) includes Full Scores, Lesson Plans, Sets, Props, Costumes, Auditions, Fine Arts Camp Guide, Crafts, Clip Art, Student Devotional Book, and Inst. Video Access. Directors may share the TRK as needed for staff and volunteers.
