Congratulations to HCA Head of School Rick Lukianuk for the acceptance of his musical, Queen E: The Reluctant Royal, into this summer’s New York Musical Festival (NYMF)! The announcement came on Friday via Broadway World. The Heritage Christian Academy Repertory Theatre recently performed this musical in HCA’s Black Box theatre, which was completed this past summer at the HCA upper school campus.
A Duke Law grad and former international lawyer, you may not have known that Mr. Lukianuk has a lifelong love of music and theatre. The emerging success of Queen E is a hard-earned dream coming true. We pray that the lovingkindness of the good and sovereign God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob will be encountered afresh, or for the first time, by many people through this creatively-adapted reenactment of the biblical story of Esther.
