Students at Missouri University of Science and Technology will perform Godspell the next two weekends in the Blackbox Theatre of Castleman Hall. The performance is presented by the Miner League Theatre Players and Alpha Psi Omega, a new theater honor fraternity at the university.
Performances will be held at 7:30 p.m. Thursday-Saturday, Feb. 10-12 and Feb. 17-19, in Room 143 Castleman Hall, 10th and Main streets in Rolla, Mo. Admission is $10. Tickets are available by calling 341-4185 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Seating is limited.
Godspell, written by John-Michael Tebelak, is a collection of stories and parables compiled from the Gospels of Luke and Matthew.
“It’s a fun show, but it’s more than just some clowns telling stories and singing catchy songs,” says director Nathan Eloe, who is pursuing his Ph.D. in computer science and is vice president of Alpha Psi Omega. “Every story, every song, every lesson means something entirely different to each actor and audience participant. And yet somehow we find ourselves drawn together, if even for the space of a few short hours.”
Rolla High School drama teacher Wendy King says she is excited that the show is being directed by a student member of Alpha Psi Omega. “Hopefully, this is just the first of many large student-directed shows to come.”
