The ensemble cast brings to the Summit stage the joy and enthusiasm of this classic, which is sure to be a hit with everyone.

GODSPELL is a musical retelling of the Gospel of Matthew in a modern-day setting. Using song and dance, the followers of Jesus learn his message of love and tolerance even as the time moves ever closer to his betrayal at the hands of Judas and ultimately, his crucifixion. GODSPELL opened Off-Broadway in 1971, moved to Broadway in 1976, and has been produced as a movie and in other venues to the present, garnering numerous awards, cast recordings and rave reviews along the way.

The rest of the ensemble includes Richard Bull, Acadia Colan, Stella Ferra, Steve Gabe, Rebecca Iacovitti, Judith Mulder, Natalie Pereira, Vicki Ridley, Jacqueline Schreiber, Vared Shmuler, Grace Trenouth, Rosemary Walter, and Arthur Wawrzyniak.
