"The Prodigal Clown" Musical
Presented By 
The First Baptist
Children's Choirs 
6:30p, Friday, February 27


"The Prodigal Clown"

Step right up and meet the Parabalini Family Circus ... the father Antonio, the older son AJ, and his little brother Giorgio. 


Despite the nonstop fun and hilarity of clowns, knife-throwers, lion-tamers, and human cannonballs, there's a serious and heartwarming story to be told about the father whose love for his children is unconditional. Ultra-cool music that even older kids love, and a rock-solid Biblical message. 


Mark your calendar to bring your family -- 

Friday, February 27 at 6:30p in the FBC Sanctuary.
