Five children from heaven play out mortality like a treasure hunt, with LOVE being the greatest prize.

My Turn On Earth is the story of each of us playing out a delightful and poignant answer to the ever-burning question–what in the world am I doing here?  Five children, sent to take their turn on earth, are challenged to come back with the treasure, the most precious thing of all.  But time is of the essence.  Suddenly their turn is finished.  Has the treasure been found? Contemporary, best-selling music—a story to captivate young and old—My Turn on Earth is a winner.

PERUSAL MATERIALS

  • Lyrics to the title song:
    • MY TURN ON EARTH
      From the family musical “My Turn On Earth” (1977)
      (© 1977 by Lex de Azevedo & Carol Lynn Pearson)
    • The world turns ’round like a merry go round
      It lets some off and it takes some on
      Some horses are high and some horses are low
      Some turns are short and some turns are long
    • My turn, it’s my turn
      It ends with death it begins with birth
      And it’s my turn, it’s my turn
      It’s my turn on Earth
    • Well, never mind just how long you stay
      The size or shade of the horse you’ve got
      Just see all the sights and hear all the sounds
      And feel the sun, and you’ll learn a lot
    • My turn, it’s my turn
      It ends with death it begins with birth
      And it’s my turn, it’s my turn
      It’s my turn on Earth
    • The world turns ’round like a Ferris wheel
      Some times you’re low and sometimes you’re high
      But even way down you can never forget
      The thrill you feel when you’re touchin’ the sky
    • My turn, it’s my turn
      It ends with death it begins with birth
      And it’s my turn, it’s my turn
      It’s my turn on Earth
