The Rutgers University production of “Godspell” was performed earlier this year in 10
sucessful performances at the Philip J. Levin Theater. “Godspell” is a modern musical based on the Gospel of St. Matthew. The show uses pantomime, comedy, narrations and songs, such as “Day by Day,” to relate the parables of “the good news” revealing the life and teachings of Jesus Christ.
“Godspell” is being directed by Rutgers’ alumnus, David Ar-dao. The production will use a six-piece band under the musical direction of Gloria Curcio and Alan Semok. The cast consists of five actors and five actresses whose roles change , rapidly from one scene to the next. Jim Siatkowski, a Rutgers theater arts graduate student and teaching assistant, plays Jesus. Tom Frascatore, a Rutgers sophomore will play John and Judas. The other members of the cast include students from Douglass College, Livingston College and Rutgers University: Joanne Strunk, Larry Rosen, Stephen Innocen-zi, Dana Eleanor Hollowell, Carol Ann Gatlin, Marion Cooper, Julia A. Brothers, and Kevin Andrews.,
