You will feel the energy as Jeremiah "AJ" Abdullah and Kirk Kelso take the stage in "Esther, A New Musical" (Feb 10, 2018, ZACH Theatre). AJ, as Hathak, looks after the queen's personal business, and Kirk, as Hegai, guides the palace virgins through beauty treatments and lessons in palace protocol. Together, these two help Esther as she adapts to life in the palace.
