There is also another change to the story : guest director Ray Kennedy
has added the resurrection of Christ to the ending.
It just seemed so right , Kennedy
said.In some ways I think ‘Godspell' awakens people to the stories they've heard before.I want them to become really enlightened about scripture and maybe explore what does it mean?.Kennedy works on productions for cruise ships and regional theaters as a part of Kennedy Entertainment
.This production returns him to the story he
has acted in , choreographed and directed in the past.He
last directed the production five years ago at the Temple Theatre in Sanford.
I never knew ‘Godspell' would be a re-occurring theme , he
The production of Godspell is somewhat of a beginning for the special 40th season for CFRT.
The theater has lined up productions through 2002 and officially opens the season with Smokey Joe's Cafe in September.
The rest of the season includes Angel Street in October , The Music Man in January , Picnic in March and Over the River and Through the Woods in June.There are also six special shows planned throughout the year including Godspell..
I knew immediately , Kennedy
said of Talbott after he
saw him read and sing for the part.
For Talbott , the intense rehearsals have been somewhat of a transformation.
It's been an education both artistically and spiritually , Talbott said.
In addition to the ensemble cast , also look forward to updated music and a strong role from the Godspell band.
