"I have seen productions of “Godspell” countless times,
but only this one reminded me of the original Broadway version that I experienced back in the ’70s.
I can honestly say that I loved every minute and every note of the performance."

Based on the Gospel of St. Matthew, Godspell was conceived and originally
directed by 
John-Michael Tebelak, who also wrote the book. The plot follows a
small group of people 
who help Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a
wide variety of games, storytelling 
techniques and hefty doses of comic timing.
An eclectic blend of songs, ranging in style from 
pop to vaudeville,
is employed as the story of Jesus' life dances across the stage. 
Dissolving hauntingly into the Last Supper and the Crucifixion, 
Jesus' messages of kindness, tolerance and love come vibrantly to life.  

The score features a parade of beloved songs, including "Day by Day,"
"Prepare Ye the Way of the Lord," "Learn Your Lessons Well,"
"All for the Best," "All Good Gifts," "Turn Back, O Man," 



The cast of  Godspell features a number of accomplished MAR veterans and talented
newcomers.  Featured in the ensemble cast are Billy Hicks (New Milford) as Jesus,
Kyle Riedinger (Southington) as John the Baptist/Judas, Victor Garry Roldan (Bethel) and
Zachary Theis (Hamden).  They are joined by Samantha LaMendola, Kevin Sayour and
Daisy Stott (all of Brookfield). New York State residents in the company include Renee
Browne (Patterson), Tori Vacca (New Windsor) and Sarah vonEgypt (Hopewell Junction).

Unfortunately, the Christmas storm this past year
caused massive damage to our stage.

The winds destroyed the masking walls for the stage wings, and broke structural 
supports on both sides of the stage. The gusts also severely damaged the rear wall of the stage that provides the principal structural support for the covered backstage area. This central backstage space shelters the cast and crew during performances (and inclement weather), provides prop and set piece storage, and serves as the principal costume changing area during the show.  


Many thanks for your consideration and support!
