Chrissy Gray in Godspell

My demanding schedule made my decision to audition for Godspell one of the most challenging, but not even a packed schedule could stop me from participating in this awesome production. It’s entertaining, comical at times, but mostly very serious. This play is more than the laughs we will receive… it’s more about the hearts that we will touch. It’s invaluable that the Godspell message resonate in the hearts of viewers. My favorite song in the production is “By my side.” I believe through song and characterization we bring alive the intimate, yet intricate parts of the crucifixion. Don’t just take my word for it, come see it!

I am having a blast being a part of this dynamic show. Godspell’s message of community is relatable to everyone. I’m confident anyone seeing this show will laugh, cry, smile, think, and be inspired by the story because we’ve experienced every emotion imaginable during rehearsals. My favorite part of the show is the music because the song styles vary greatly and are challenging. If I had to pick a favorite, I’d give it to “Bless the Lord” because it’s catchy, energetic, and pure joy. Godspell has truly been a unique experience, and I am so thankful to be a part of this family of actors. It’s astounding how quickly we’ve bonded, and I’m confident that the audience will feel the love.

My name is Schylar Danford-Berry and I am so excited to be a part of Godspell. I never really knew a lot about Godspell, but I fell in love with the music instantly and especially felt a real connection to Day By Day which I am so honored to be able to sing. It has been such incredible thing to be surrounded by so many talented and creative minds and having everyone create something together. This show is very unique. I have loved this journey of finding special moments on stage with my cast and becoming a family, not just on stage, but in life as well. This is an experience I will not forget.

Hannah Branson in Godspell

I listened to the music from the 2012 Broadway revival cast several months ago and knew I had to audition. I’m so lucky to be in a cast so packed with talent. I can promise you haven’t seen anything like this production at Strauss, and you won’t want to miss it! 

Micaela Jolly in Godspell

I first listened to Godspell when I started doing musical theatre at the age of 11. Six years later, it remains my all time favorite show. A powerful and fun story about love and unity told through the Biblical parables we’ve grown up with, it truly is a show that the whole family can enjoy and learn from. One of the most captivating aspects of the show for me is the music. It conveys so much emotion, ranging from joyful to completely solemn. My song “Bless the Lord” celebrates the love of Christ and what he’s done for us, and I hope the audience is able to feel the same energy that the moment exudes. It really is something special, and I’m excited to finally bring to life the show that made me fall in love with the world of theatre.

Godspells’ Shonice Saint-Jean

This will be my third production at Strauss theatre but I must say that it shall be the most profound because of its mesmerizing message. To me Godspell is a story that can be felt by all generations because it a story of discovery and the lessons that we encounter on our journey to both Christ and finding our true selves. My character has her moment of self-discovery during turn back old man by understanding how to put down her foolish ways and pick up who she truly is. The song that touches me the most in this production is “All Good Things.” This song makes me block out the negatives and focus on the position things around me. I can find peace in the midst of chaos with Christ and I’m grateful for the little things daily.This will be my third production at Strauss theatre but I must that it shall be the most profound because of its mesmerizing message.
