Last Friday and Saturdayevening, an all female post-apostolic adaptation of Godspell, directed by David Cronin, was performed at Bishop Kearney. Godspell is a musical by Steven Schwartz that opened in New York Off Broadway in 1971. The storyline revolves around the New Testament Gospels of Matthew and Luke.
Gabrielle Guzman, who played Jesus Christ said, “I am overjoyed that I was involved in Bishop Kearney’s all female rendition of Godspell. I felt with every rehearsal I became closer to Jesus, his teachings, and I made them a bigger part of my life. This play made a great impact on my confidence and my courage, and for that I am forever grateful!”
David Cronin, director, “My team and I saw immense growth from these students, not only as vocalists, dancers and actresses but as strong, confident, brave young women. This experience made it apparent how important "arts education" truly is. Thank you for this opportunity and supporting these beautiful young women in something they were not even sure they could do themselves. I am so insanely proud of the work of my creative team and these young women.”
The production was fun, extremely engaging, and lively. The audience really enjoyed the show.
