Fraser Armstrong ('09, Dramatic Productions minor) is a contracted actor for Sight and Sound Theatres in Branson, MO. His credits include the lead role in Moses, as well as roles in Noah the Musical, Miracle of Christmas, and Joseph. "After every show, an invitation to receive Christ is given, and cast and crew lead an after-show prayer ministry," Armstrong said. "Whether I am serving as an actor playing a 9-foot giant, singing, helping move set pieces, or riding a horse on stage, everything is done for the praise of His glory and that our patrons might come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ."
