Bethlehem Catholic HS’s Theatre Department spring musical, “Godspell” by Stephen Schwartz and directed by Debbie Acampora opened April 13 and continues April 20 and 21. The 70s inspired ‘hippie’ costumes and the basic stage constructed of boxes that the actors stood or sat on throughout the play all made sense as you watched the musical, which had several stage-wide dance numbers and gatherings. The staging is a spectacle with movement, at times both on the floor and in the aisles. There were over 50 in the Becahi cast. “Godspell” opened off Broadway on May 17, 1971.
The Lehigh Valley Charter HS for the Arts performed its spring musical, “The Drowsy Chaperone” April 11 through April 15 with four evening and one matinee performance. Based on the book by Bob Martin and Don McKeller, with lyrics and music by Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison, “The Drowsy Chaperone” is set in the lively era of the 1920s, as seen through the eyes of an audience member. The impending marriage of a Broadway star to a tycoon snowballs into series of comedic and confusing misadventures.
