The junior high worked hard to produce something very special for the spring performance. Holy Angels has been able to work with MTI (Musical Theater International) to bring our community a production of Godspell Jr.
Holy Angels also partnered with First Stage Children’s Theater this year for our Artist-in-Residence program, funded by the Stehling Project. Each junior high class was given the opportunity to learn from an experienced theater professional on the elements of creating a dynamic musical production. The eighth grade was also given an extra lesson on how to have a successful audition. The eighth grade then auditioned for the roles in Godspell Jr.
Leading roles were played by Owen Schmidt as Jesus of Nazareth, Ricky Conlin as Judas Iscariot, and Michael Kleinhans as St. Peter. Other junior high students added spoken lines or singing solos to the production. The successful production was presented to a full house under the direction of Amelia Scheit.
