Laurie has produced several musical dramas in
which she plays the role of a bible character, or person searching for
the truth. Here is a synopsis of them.
You can watch video clips of some of her dramas on this web site by clicking the "Watch Video" Buttons below.
You can also see some of her videos on Laurie's You Tube Channel.
"Was Blind, But Now I See"
Watch video clips from a live performance of "Was Blind, But Now I See - Fanny Crosby"
The life of Fanny Crosby is a remarkable journey. Blinded as a baby by a poor diagnosis and treatment of an eye infection, she was determined not to let it become a handicap. Her accomplishments despite her condition are staggering, writing more than 8,000 hymns and Sunday School songs.
Her story is a reminder that God can use you no matter what your physical limitations are or how ordinary you think you are. People are not born into greatness, but rather, greatness is thrust upon them if they have a willing heart and spirit to serve God.
Most of the songs sung in this presentation are, of course, Fanny Crosby's work. While others, before she started writing, are Laurie's own original compositions.
This is the story of Mephibosheth. It is moving
story of love and friendship. David searches for the crippled son of Jonathan,
his best friend. It is told from the perspective of the nurse who was
responsible for crippling the boy and in fear for his life, she tries
to hide him from David.
It talks a little bit about guilt, but is primarily
about grace. As David searched for Mephibosheth and finds him, he is adopted
into the King's family. God is also reaching out his hand longing to show
us that same unconditional love and adopt us into His family. He is also
encouraging those of us He has already saved to show unconditional love
to those who are in need.
"Mary - Good and Faithful Servant"

The story of Mary is not just a Christmas message.
It covers an entire life span. So often we don't allow Mary to be any
more than a figurine brought out at Christmas.
In this presentation I bring out her humanness and
how God uses ordinary people to do extraordinary things. She is a young
woman willing to put her wishes aside to be obedient to her God. A mother who loves her son dearly and wanting to protect him from harm. She
is a woman in crisis who needs her son's advice. She is heart broken standing
at the foot of the cross. Even her reminiscing, everything she pondered and treasured
in her heart, is no comfort.
She becomes a woman of prayer, longing for
the day when she will hear her saviour say, "Well done my good and
"My Eyes Shall See"

This is the story of Martha. It is a scriptural
journey through the life of workaholic Martha, which is something we can
all identify with. Her encounter with the Lord Jesus starts out with some
strong rebukes but then she moves slowly to acknowledge him as a friend,
a healer, a miracle worker, to finally, her saviour.
It covers the time
frame of the last part of Jesus' ministry, through the triumphal entry
into Jerusalem, His death and resurrection. It is not until Jesus is gone
that Martha realizes Mary had chosen what was better but she determines
to serve her Master with a better attitude and a hopeful heart to one
day sit at Jesus feet in glory.

takes her on a spiritual journey back to discover some of the prophesies

gift and the reason for the season.
