A former Broadway rock musical will be presented at Cabrini College in the theater located in Grace Hall to celebrate the 50th anniversary. Godspell, the rock musical, is based on the Gospel of Saint Matthew. It will be the first musical that Cabrini has staged in a long time.

Dr. Thomas Stretton Jr., assistant professor of education, will be directing the musical with the assistance of Dr. Adeline Bethany, professor of the fine arts, as the musical director. Stretton and Bethany are working closely with the theater participants for the musical. Dr. Steven Wright, assistant director, and Bob Iodice, faculty advisor of technical theater are also vital members of the production.

Students rehearse together almost every night during the week, and put in hours for the show on the weekends. Also during the week they have one-on-one voice lessons to perfect their solos.

This semester there will be returning actors and actresses as well as fresh faces glistening the stage and entertaining the audience.

Members of this semester’s production are, Zach Berman, Jessica Fagotti, Nicole Hearn, Stephanie Iaccarino, Madeline Iacobucci, Katie Ierardi, Katie Juliana, Michael Krencicki, Joe Kimpflen, Erin McCole, Linda Milne, Bill Monahan, Kyle Parker, Kathryn Roper, Matthew Rowe, Doug Wiebe and Shannon Winters.

The musical itself is in the form of a narrative and series of stories from the Bible, mainly from the Gospel of Matthew, set to modern music with lyrics from the traditional hymns.

The Cabrini stage crew has also been undergoing expansions as a club. Together they expedited the process of putting together the set and fixing up the theater itself for ongoing productions.

The show premieres Thursday, April 3 at 8 p.m., it will follow consecutively on April 4, 5, 10, 11 and 12 at 8 p.m..

A matinee will be offered on Sunday, April 13 at 2 p.m.. Tickets are free and available to anyone planning to attend the musical from the Office of Student Activities. Doors open half an hour before show time.
