Even though the production of Godspell that I directed at The Kelsey Theatre closed on Sunday, the producers at M & M Stage Productions thought it would be wonderful to give back to the community and provide a little entertainment for the residents of a local senior care center. The cast gathered together on Thursday night one final time to sing a few songs from the score. There wasn’t enough space to really perform any choreography and the accompanist was different than normal, but the residents didn’t seem to notice any flubs. The small audience gathered in a semicircle and clapped along while nurses passed around fruit punch and popcorn. I’m sure many of the residents who were unable to leave their beds also heard the performance, because let me tell you, that cast was loud.
So now it’s official: Godspell is over. What to do for the rest of the summer…?
