From Orphan to Queen, the Story of Esther is the Biblical heroine's story of Hadassah, a young Jewish woman who transforms into Queen Esther and, by putting her own life in danger and winning the respect of the king, saves her people from a massacre. This new musical will be performed by the award winning theater company One Way Productions
Our Mission One Way Productions is driven by a passion for the Lord Jesus Christ. Our mission is to produce theatrical works of the highest standards. We place a priority on training and educating while making the arts an affordable venue for our community. We strive for excellence and encourage integrity, creativity and personal growth.
One Way Productions first opened its doors in 1993 as a theatre school for children under the direction of Ingrid Laurentiis-Wilson, it produced original and published pieces in Burbank, CA until 1997. In 2007, One Way Productions once again opened its doors, but this time providing instruction to home educated students in the Sacramento and surrounding areas. Our first main stage production was John Bunyan’s The Pilgrim’s Progress (adapted for the stage by Ms. Wilson).
In 2008, One Way Productions became a non-profit organization producing its first original musical A High Calling In Camelot (based on The Story of King Arthur and His Knights by Howard Pyle); the stage play was written by Ms. Wilson with original music by Lynne Cimorelli. In 2011, One Way Productions produced From Orphan to Queen: The Story of Esther. All eight performances at Three Stages sold out. The production earned three Elly Nominations and Ms. Wilson earned the prestigious John McGrath Scholarship for Theatre Studies which took her to Edinburgh, Scotland for three weeks. This was the first production with a cast of adults and children. Since Esther, One Way Productions continues to grow, many of our shows are completely sold out before opening night. We are so grateful for the continuous encouragement and support of our community.
Two hours, including 15 minute intermission
