'Nephi' musical continues at BYU
PROVO A new musical drama, "With Mine Own Hand: The Musical Account of Nephi," continues through Friday on the Pardoe stage of the Harris Fine Arts Center.
Originating in the Pacific Northwest and with a cast from Portland, Ore., the show is being performed during Campus Education Week at Brigham Young University.
The genesis for "With Mine Own Hand" began 30 years ago, when B. Dale Zabriskie, now of Washington state, conceived a one-man show based on Nephi's own words. His wife, Ramona Zabriskie, began editing the books of Nephi to be conducive to the stage a project that ultimately took 15 years.
"With Mine Own Hand" will be presented twice daily today and Friday at 4:30 p.m. and 8 p.m. The production is open to the public; patrons do not have to be Campus Education Week participants.
Tickets are being sold at www.byuarts.com or by calling 801-422-4322.
