Summit H.S. Stages 'Godspell' in Two Shows Set for June 4; Performances Preview 'Fringe Festival' Appearance in Scotland

The Summit High School cast of "Godspell."

SUMMIT, NJ - Summit High School's award-winning theatre arts department is set to preform "Godspell," the pop hit musical composed of parables from the Gospel of Matthew, one day only on June 4, with shows at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.

The show is a preview performance prior to the Summit High School troupe traveling to Scotland in August to perform it at this summer’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
Boasting a score of chart popping songs, a community of followers share Jesus' messages of love, redemption, and tolerance through games, storytelling techniques, song and dance.
Tickets are priced at $10 and can be purchased at the door.    
Summit High School is one of only 40 high schools selected by American High School Theater Festival to participate in “the Fringe,” based on overall excellence of the school’s program.
The Edinburgh Festival Fringe, with nearly 3,000 productions, 40,000 performances and thousands of performers from around the globe, is the largest performance arts festival in the world and takes place every August in Scotland’s capital city.
In addition to their own performance, the Summit High School students will have the opportunity to see productions staged by other schools as well as professional troupes.  
Due to expense, Summit High School participates in the event only once every four years. 
The cast and crew of "Godspell" includes:
Gerard Apruzzese, James Badenhausen, Sarah Beatty*, Anne Borzner, Alexa Carlson, Annika Carlson, Anthony Cusumano, Nicholas Della Sala, Grace DePhillips, Savannah Dooley, Katherine Dotten*, Liam Dwyer*, Catherine Esposito, Avery Fessler, Claire Fitzpatrick, Catherine Floegel, Kayla Goldman, Jacqueline Gray, Catherine Hassert, Christopher Heckelman**, Juliet Huneke, Jessica Jilla, Hope Kovera, Erin Manion, Keegan McManus, Sean McManus (as Jesus), Grace Milsten, Kendra Olson, Zachary Olson, Caleigh Pan-Kita, Robert Scott*, Jeremy Schultz, John Stewart, Elizabeth Tenny, Nicole Trone, and Matthew Wilson.
