Marco Lutheran Church has been in the play production business for 25 years! The first musical performed in the now Great Room Theatre, was “Godspell,” way back in 1994. The collaborative project with actors from all over the Naples and Marco community established a long running series of theatrical offerings for our island residents. Broadway favorites like “Man of La Mancha,” “The Music Man,” “Fiddler on the Roof,” “Camelot,” “Barnum,” “Stop the World,” and “Frankenstein, A New Musical” have entertained residents over the years.
This season, as a celebration of our 25th anniversary, the Community Theatre Project is bringing back “Godspell” to our stage. This wonderfully energetic show by Stephen Schwartz, the creator of “Pippin” and “Wicked,” will be a delight to our island audiences.
Familiar tunes and longtime Broadway standards like “Day By Day” will have audiences singing in their seats. Our revival will feature a brand-new cast as well as reach back into Marco nostalgia by offering special guest appearances from some of the original 1994 cast.
The show is scheduled for three performances on February 28th, March 1st and 2nd at 7:30 PM in the Great Room Theatre at Marco Lutheran Church, 525 North Collier Blvd., Marco Island.
Tickets may be purchased at the Church Box Office. More information can be obtained by calling 239-394-5579.
