March 14, 2003

Characters in the Purim play "The Megillah According to the Beatles" held a dress rehearsal Thursday night at the Congregation B'nai Abraham in preparation for the performance Monday night at 7 p.m. at the synagogue at 53 E. Baltimore St.

Characters in the Biblical story include Esther, her husband King Ahasureus and Haman, a Persian official who sought to destroy the Jews and was hanged when Esther discovered his plot and told her husband.

Haman, portrayed by Roger Schlossberg, will perform his song, "Bow Down," at the performance.

Guests may attend the Monday performance in costume. All the music and costumes are based on the Beatles of the 1970s.
