Erin Keith, Founder, Director and Producer of Spotlight Productions is pleased to announce their musical performance of Godspell.
Prepare ye for Godspell, the beloved classic from Stephen Schwartz, the Grammy and Academy Award-winning composer of Wicked and Pippin. Enjoy all the good gifts of one of the most enduring shows of all time as it comes to, Medford High School’s Marsha Caron Theater located at 489 Winthrop Street, on Friday March 7th at 7pm and Saturday March 8th at 2pm and 7pm performance times. Raise your spirit with the score filled with the popular hits “Day By Day,” “Learn Your Lessons Well” and “Turn Back, O Man.”
Performed by ensemble cast, the show has no stars. Rather it is the message of the gospels itself that takes center stage. That message is related through the telling of the parables of Jesus in a contemporary way, whimsical and often moving fashion, which truly brings these stories and the values that they convey to life.
Keith’s sister, Elle a senior at Medford High School and co-director is no novice to the stage she was last seen flying through the air as Peter Pan and will surely please the audience as she takes the stage, alongside the young children she has been directing, in the role of Jesus. Technical Director John Howard, who is a teacher at Saint Joseph’s in Medford, will also be performing dual roles as Judas and John the Baptist. Howard’s brother Paul, Assistant Director has loved every minute of rehearsals and will be making one or two appearances on stage with the cast. According to Erin, she has been really impressed with the professionalism, talent and maturity that her young actors have displayed during rehearsals and is looking forward to bringing this show to the community.
