This musicalization of the Bible from Creation to the Nativity is a reverent, a light hearted romp. Satan employs increasingly ludicrous efforts to upset God's plan for mankind-- only to find he's making people turn to God even more fervently. The verbal battles between God and Satan are theologically sound and hilarious. Here are Adam and Eve, Abraham, Samson and Delilah, David and Bathsheba, Noah and many more in an inspirational and entertaining show that is suitable for year round productions and ideal at Christmas. Musical numbers include Satan urging the lions to devour Daniel and a quartet in barbershop harmony during Samson's shearing.

And On the Sixth Day... had its world premiere at Altergott Auditorium in Palatine, Illinois on June 14, 1983. It was directed by Rob Howell.
