  Marist Theatre Program and Marist College Club
  of Theatre Arts will present the Stephen Schwartz
  rock musical Godspell on in the Nelly Goletti Theatre
  on February 26, 27, & 28 at 8:00 p.m. and February 28
  and March 1 at 2:00 p.m. Godspell features a cast
  of 10 talented students (pictured above) and a memorable
  score including "Day by Day" and "Light of the World."

  Of particular note will be the February 28 matinee,
  which will be an American Sign Language-interpreted
  performance. Director Matt Andrews points out that
  Godspell's themes of community make it "the perfect
  vehicle to introduce a new element of theatre to local
  audiences. Although ASL performances are regularly
  practiced in professional theatre, I rarely find this opportunity
  available in the Hudson River Valley. Our 2 ASL interpreters
  will communicate the entire show, making it one that both
  hearing and Deaf audiences can enjoy." A special staging
  of the play has also been arranged for students in several area
  schools. In addition, the February 28 matinee will be attended
  by prospective students participating in the Theatre Open House
  coordinated by Admissions.

 Ticket prices for the performance will be $6 for students and $12 for adults. Discounted tickets are available for groups
 and for members of the Deaf and hard of hearing community. To reserve seats in advance, please call the box office at
 (845) 575-3133 or e-mail

 Marist Theatre Program's busy Spring 2015 season will also include a Children's Theatre production of The Princess
and a festival of original student-written plays. In the summer, the Program will host a Summer Pre-College
 Theatre Institute open
to high school students.
