ASHEBORO – Asheboro High School and the Park Street Players will present three performances of the musical, "Godspell," May 12-14.
This will be the first musical theater performance in the AHS Performing Arts Center in three years, following the pandemic and renovations of the high school building.
“Godspell" has been a staple of student, community and professional theater groups since its premiere in 1971. With music composed by Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Hunchback of Notre Dame, Pippin) and book by Michael Tebelak, the show is structured as a series of parables, primarily based on the Gospel of Matthew.
The music is interspersed with contemporary arrangements of traditional hymns, with the passion of Christ appearing briefly near the end. This production uses the music and script from the 2012 Broadway revival and includes popular favorites, including Day by Day; Turn Back, O Man; By My Side; and Beautiful City.
AHS' production includes the following cast members: Michael Silva-Garcia as Jesus, Jaysin Martyn as Judas/John the Baptist, Allison Reeder, Kasandra Perez, Piper Davidson, Olivia Smith, Naomi Bustamante, Becca Leveille, Stephanie Eusebio as the disciples, and Carolina Texca, Enzo Torres, Jelsis Perez-Berrocales, Michelle Acosta-Hernandez, Aaliya Zagada, and Tye Ford as ensemble members. Crew members include Zoe Glover, Kilian Peters, Maddie Lamb, Robert Vigue, Jimmy Luna-Sanchez, and Samantha De La Vega.
