Daniel The Musical

Personal message

Daniel The Musical is a Broadway style musical presented in the heart of Jerusalem at the iconic Jerusalem Theatre.  A production from South Africa to bless the people of Israel and the nations.  

In the video above, Joe Niemand shares how God led him to do the Daniel The Musical production and how you can be involved (also a MUST WATCH moving extract from the musical production between 0:44 and 1:52).

From its soaring African voices to the thundering of the drums, Daniel The Musical is a tour de force. A musical production of epic proportions that will bring to life this gripping story of heroic faith, with the flair and passion of Africa. This full scale stage production is scheduled for its world premiere at the Jerusalem theatre between 10 – 22 October 2019 and promises to be a once in a lifetime experience.

We need your help to share this production with the people of Israel. This is your opportunity to do two very important things at the same time.

  • Help us get Daniel The Musical to Jerusalem
  • Bless someone in Israel who cannot afford a ticket.

We are working with various organisations in Israel to bless Holocaust survivors, orphans and others who cannot afford to ever see a show like this. Let us be a blessing to Israel by sending them this love letter called Daniel The Musical and at the same time sponsor seats for the needy.

We firmly believe that every blessing we give in Israel will be poured out by God in the life and country of those who give it (Gen 12:3)

Tickets are 199NIS (approximately R800) and you can bless how ever many orphans and survivors you are able to. The total proceeds received from BackaBuddy will allow for the setting aside of reserved seating of the equivalent value for the special categories mentioned above, to attend this world class event – sponsored by you!

Finally, your early sponsorship of seats will in addition to the above, help cash flow management for pre-production funding.

Matched Funding

In line with our heart to bless Israel - the production management team has felt to match each donation received - this means that for each ticket sponsored through the BackaBuddy website - the production management team will also sponsor a ticket (matched funding of up to 1,000 tickets - approximately R800,000).  So as you sow your seed as per Rom 15:27 (For if the Gentiles have shared in their spiritual blessings, they are obligated to minister to them with material blessings) then the production management team will match that, so that your 1 seat immediately becomes 2 seats!

Why bring ‘Daniel The Musical’ from South Africa to Jerusalem?

The Book of Daniel forms a key part of the Holy Writings for Jews and the Old Testament for Christians. ‘Daniel The Musical’ brings this gripping story back to its place of origin- the center of the world, Jerusalem, the home of the Jews and sacred land for Christian pilgrims, celebrating what we have in common, which is a love for the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and His people.

‘Daniel The Musical’ is a powerful reminder to God’s chosen people that He is not confined to the pages of an old book, but is still a rewarder of those who seek Him. Israel is again “surrounded”, but God has not forgotten His people. We want to demonstrate to our Jewish brothers and sisters (and the world) that we support them and stand with them and the God of Israel.
