Notes

For Abilene Christian University's 75th anniversary, the president of the school asked Theatre Department Chair Lewis Fulks to write a musical pageant portraying ACU's history and put on a production of the work for the school's 1980 Homecoming musical. Co-written by June Bearden, the result was called "Like Stars Shining Brightly," a theatrical journey back in time spanning from the founding of the school as Childers Classical Institute in 1906 to the time the show was written. The music was composed by Robert Page, and the lyrics were written by Robert Page and Lewis Fulks. The directorial team included director Lewis Fulks, vocal director Jeannette Lipford, choral director Milton Pullen, choreographer Marj Baucam, costume designer Wyatt Hester, scenery designer Matt Aston, and technical director Ted Starnes. The musical ran from October 23rd to October 26th at the Abilene Civic Center.
