Quincy Community Theatre Announces Cast of ‘Godspell’
A stellar cast will light up the stage in Quincy Community Theatre’s upcoming musical ‘GODSPELL,’ March 7-10 & 14-17.
Lightly based on the Gospel According to Matthew, this heartfelt story will push you to the edge of your seats as it brings the parables of Jesus to life on stage. ‘GODSPELL’ (by Stephen Schwartz, the Grammy and Academy Award-winning composer of ‘Wicked’ and ‘Pippin’) draws from various theatrical traditions. It was—and continues to be—a groundbreaking and unique reflection of the life of Jesus with a message for today of kindness, tolerance, and love. With songs like “Prepare Ye the Way of the Lord,” “Day by Day,” and “Turn Back, O Man,” ‘GODSPELL’ is sure to be a crowd pleaser for all ages!
The show features strong vocalists from both Quincy and La Grange, including Brendan Brand as Jesus, Brittany Daly as Gilmer, Sarah Droege as Robin, Rachel Foster as Peggy, Shawn Jones as Lamar, Josh Kollitz as Herb, Cori Lyssy as Joanne, David Samuels as Jeffrey, Joshua Scott as Judas, and Courtney Stewart as Sonia.
‘GODSPELL’is under the direction of Managing Artistic Director Lenny Bart, with Vocal Director Becky Payne, Choreographer Cheryl Kaiser, and is conducted by Mike Saul. Scenic and lighting design is by Technical Director Paul Denckla with costumes by resident designer Anna Grywalski. Trevor Ketteman serves as the stage manager.
Tickets to this modern-day retelling of the Gospel are $20, on sale Feb. 11. For tickets or more information, visit 1qct.org or call the QCT Box Office, located in the Oakley-Lindsay Center, to make a reservation.
