A Broadway-style musical revue for a mixed cast of almost any size (minimum of eight: 4m and 4f) that intertwines music and sketches to examine the futility of life without God. Based on the Book of Ecclesiastes, it presents a variety of contemporary people and situations as they look for the meaning of life through the pursuit of fun, power, wealth, religion, and the many values we think will bring satisfaction and don't. It's satirical yet sensitive to the inner needs we all have and the ultimate need for a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

Situations include: Radio station FUN-104; Pepskin the world's first combination soft drink, mouthwash and acne medicine; a mock-opera about middle class living, and much more. Vocal score published in text.

The Meaning of Life and Other Vanities premiered in September, 1985 as part of the Annual Arts Festival at Grace Baptist Church in Bowie, Maryland.
