PREPARE YE THE WAY… for Bethlehem Catholic’s production of “Godspell.” The Becahi Theater Department, led by director Debbie Acampora, performed Stephen Schwartz’s musical “Godspell” on April 13, 14, 15, 20 and 21.

Becahi students tirelessly rehearsed to present the parables from the Gospel of Matthew in a 70s twist. Although Schwartz’s original production featured only 10 actors, the Becahi cast and crew included over 50 talented students.

‘Godspell’

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.
