Brampton - On May 1st, 2nd and 3rd the St. Thomas Aquinas Regional Arts Program Grade 12 Drama Majors will perform their rendition of John Michael Tebelak’s musical comedy sensation - “GODSPELL”. This student interpretation centres around Stephen Gardener, a new volunteer at the Toronto Covenant House as he encounters and ultimately guides a set of haphazard, homeless youths to a brighter path. The musical features such widely known numbers as DAY BY DAY and BLESS THE LORD. The musical numbers are being choreographed by the Dance Majors and music will be performed by Instrumental Music Majors making this a truly cooperative experience.
This interpretation is aimed at bringing attention to homelessness on Toronto’s streets, 11,000 of which are youth under the age of 25. On any given night there are an estimated 1500 – 2000 homeless youth. The students wish to reach out to their school community and the greater community at large to exercise their commitment to relevant social justice issues. The seriousness of the issue being represented is enhanced with laughter and pop culture references that will make this an entertainment experience not to be missed.
This production is presented by the Fourth Year Drama Majors as part of their second annual theatre season which has been designed to engage the students in a well-rounded authentic theatrical experience. “GODSPELL” follows their first very successful production of the season ”THE ODD COUPLE female version”, which filled our studio theatre with the laughter of the delighted audiences.
