ST. JOHN’S EPISCOPAL CHURCH will be presenting Godspell, Jr. on November 14th – 16th. Co-directed by St. John’s staff members Jay DiPrima (director of youth ministry) and Mark Nelson (Music Director), the cast features a group of young talented performers from Gloucester, Rockport and Manchester.
Based on The Gospel According to St. Matthew, the musical uses major episodes in the life of Jesus – including his baptism, the Last Supper, his arrest and crucifixion – to explore important ideas like compassion, love, forgiveness and sacrifice for the greater good. The show draws on various theatrical traditions and musical styles, including pantomime, charades, acrobatics, vaudeville, folk and rock to create a unique reflection on the parables of Jesus.
The role of Jesus (and assistant director) will be played by Jack Favazza whose performances are well known in Gloucester and at the North Shore Music Theatre. The double role of John the Baptist/Judas will be played by Tess Burnham whose talents have also been displayed at the stages of O’Maley, GHS and currently Bishop Fenwick. Both Jack and Tess perform a number of solo songs as well as a powerhouse duet (All for the Best). The other thespians share both soloist and ensemble roles – Cara Stockman (Day by Day), Hanna Conlon (Learn Your Lessons Well), Gabrielle Cros (All Good Gifts), Jillian Osmond (Oh Bless the Lord my Soul) and Kaylee Parker. Choreographed by Carson afklinteberg, the dances reflect a joyful and upbeat story theatre approach.
All tickets ($10.00) can be purchased or reserved by e-mailing or calling Betsy Levick, Parish Administrator – email@example.com or 978 – 283 – 1708 ext. 14. Tickets can also be purchased at the door twenty minutes before each performance.
(All proceeds will be used exclusively for future children and youth programs)
All performances will be held in the beautiful sanctuary of St. John’s Episcopal Church at 48 Middle St, Gloucester, MA. Parking is available in our lot at 33 Washington St.
