Prep Players Deliver Great Performance of 'Godspell,' Earn Halo Nominations


The Prep Players inspired the audience with a great performance of Godspell on May 10, 11 and 12 at the Quick Center for the Arts. The musical is a series of parables about the life of Jesus, based on the Gospel. The story is about the building of a community. The members of that community are able to trust one another, play, share, and risk, and therefore, spread timeless messages of kindness and tolerance and hope. Director Megan Hoover complimented her cast and crew: "All this has, in so many ways, captured everything that this amazing group of students is all about."

Additionally, the Prep Players have been recognized by Seven Angels Theatre with 14 Halo nominations for the fall production of Peter and the Starcatcher and Godspell. Mrs. Hoover added: "I am truly proud, and I hope you will join me in congratulating them on this amazing achievement. We will be celebrating our amazing year at the awards presentation on May 30 at the Palace Theatre in Waterbury. The cast of Godspell will be performing 'All for the Best' at the ceremony that evening."
