It's Cool in the Furnace

A Musical about Daniel, King Nebuchadnezzar, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego

Created by Buryl Red and Grace Hawthorne

Some things never grow old and never go out of fashion -- some things remain "cool" forever. Bible stories are timeless, and the tale of a Godly guy named Daniel, his three side-kicks and a fiery furnace is about as cool as it gets. So too is the classic children's musical that recounts this captivating tale with humor, action, and spiritual heart. With the thirty-five year anniversary re-release of It's Cool in the Furnace by Grace Hawthorne and Buryl Red, a whole new generation of kids will get to experience this certified "standard" for the first time, just as another generation will get to relive what made this 40-minute musical adventure an instant classic.

It's Cool in the Furnace

Review by EVC


Wow! I am so excited to see this is available again! When I was a small child I remember participating in this musical with our "King's Kids" children's choir and I just loved it. Now I am planning a VBS for our church with the same theme and have been remembering some of the songs from my childhood--wishing I could remember all the details to share with the children. I am really amazed that I can now share more than just my memories, but the actual music!!! Delightfully surprised!
