Miami, FL -- (ReleaseWire) -- 10/07/2014 --A new film musical is seeking sponsorship for film distribution. After thirty-four years, EFM Production’s “ABRAHAM & SARAH” the Film Musical starring Broadway Stars MICHAEL LACKEY & NANCY HAYWOOD is finally ready for the theaters!
”It took that long to go from the stage to the screen, with the last seven years filming and editing”, said Producer/Director/Writer CATHY ELLIS. “It is the Dream of a lifetime.”
Based on the Biblical story, the film follows the journey of Abraham, his wife Sarah and their nephew Lot as they leave the land of Ur for the Promised land where Abraham's faith is irrevocably established for all time and he becomes known as "God's Friend". Filled with gorgeous award-winning music and told with humor and a few moments which require a tissue, this 'family-friendly' film is already getting rave reviews from audiences that have attended early screenings. ”Because of the demand by people wanting the film to come to their cities, we are fundraising to help with the distribution on Indiegogo”, said Ms. Ellis.
The film also stars RANDALL HAHN as “LOT” and some of today’s top clean comedians including MIKE WILLIAMS, DONNA EAST, JUSTIN FENNELL, JOBY SAAD and JOHN BRANYAN. “The film is full of humor, beautiful music, inspiration and encouragement, all of which is very much needed in today’s world”, said Ms. Ellis. “You will leave the theater feeling wonderful and singing the songs”.
