Shining Star Graces "Number the Stars" from North End Players

Guest reviewer Gregory E. Zschomler: You may be familiar with the stage play made from "The Diary of Anne Frank," or the story of Corrie ten Boom's plight in "The Hiding Place," and have some knowledge of the many atrocities of the Nazis during the Holocaust of World War II. "Number the Stars" covers similar territory from a different perspective--that of a non-Jewish girl aiding the escape of Danish Jews.
Two things you need to know about the title of this Newberry Award-winning story. 1) The Bible says the God has numbered the stars (every one of them) and that, 2) God promised Abraham that his descendants would be as numerous as the stars.
