CCM Prep showcases its young actors with a one-act version of this cult-classic musical. Tickets available through the CCM Box Office.

CCM Preparatory and Community Engagement presents a shortened and edited version of Stephen Schwartz and John-Michael Tebelak’s popular musical Godspell Jr. on Thursday, May 9 through Saturday, May 11, 2019. The show is told as a series of parables taken from the Biblical books of Matthew, Luke and John.

This production features the students of CCM Prep’s Junior Musical Theatre Intensive program, who range from 9 and 14 years old. The student cast includes: Shannon Aitken, Hana Conte, Ben Crane, Jackson Higgason, Natalie Hillgrove, Claire Jeffreys, Noah Jeffreys, Kadyn Keeney, Lily Larsen, Ella Maisel, Esther Medlin, Rory Miller, Jack Rosen, Ceiliegh Rodway, Noelle Shiffert and Miriam Shrivastava.

In January, co-directors Becca Kloha Strand, Rebecca N. Childs and Karie-Lee Sutherland took the production to the Junior Theater Festival in Atlanta, where they presented a 15-minute excerpt of the show. Their performance received an award for Excellence in Acting, and actors Ben Crane and Esther Medlin were designated Festival All Stars. In addition to the performance, the students participated in master classes for acting, dance and music.

Numerous CCM Theatre Design and Production students make up the production crew for this show. These include Haleigh Sano, stage manager; Olivia Darling, assistant stage manager; Jacquelyn Reis, set designer; Lynae Smith, technical director; Andrew Stewart, lighting designer, Kelly Howland, sound operator; Julie Lasonczyk, scenic change artist; and Myrrh Sewell, prop master.
