Immaculata University’s Cue and Curtain Present “Godspell” As Their Fall Production
The Cue and Curtain Players, Immaculata University´s drama group, will be presenting a production of John Michael Tebelak´s Godspell. Performances will be located in the Alumnae Hall Theatre on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, November 15, 16 and 17 at 8:00 p.m. On Sunday, November 18, the matinee begins at 2:00 p.m. The players will perform under the direction of Sister Marcille McEntee, IHM.
Written by John Michael Tebelak, Godspell is based on the Gospel of St. Matthew found in the Christian New Testament. Through its use of clowning, mime, charades, acrobatics, and vaudeville, this drama reveals the story of Christ´s formation of the early Chrisitan community. Both the dialogue and the music (composed by Stephen Schwartz), humorously and joyously lead the audience into a celebration of God´s unconditional love and the "life style" that results from such a faith. Since its opening in the Cherry Lane Theater, Godspell has become one of the most performed dramas in American history, appealing to every age group. As one Cue and Curtain performer said, "There´s just something about this play that grabs the heart."
Tickets are $10 for adults; $5.00 for students (with ID) and senior citizens; and children under six are free. For more information, contact 610-647-4400, ext. 3022.
Immaculata University, a Catholic coeducational institution, is located 20 miles west of Philadelphia, south of the intersection of routes 30 and 352, between Paoli and Exton.
