Cast Announced for Sturgeon Bay High School’s “Godspell”

Sturgeon Bay High School recently announced its cast for the 2017 musical, Godspell.

Godspell was the first major musical theatre offering from three-time Grammy and Academy Award winner Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin, Children of Eden), and it took the world by storm. The main story of Godspell is portrayed in the way the players interact with their leader, coming together to create a loving community to re-enact the life of Jesus. The ensemble of actors acts out different parables by using a wide variety of games, storytelling techniques and a hefty dose of comic timing, along with an eclectic blend of songs, ranging in style from rock to gospel to vaudeville. As the story of Jesus’ life moves across the stage, his messages of kindness, tolerance and love come vibrantly to life.

Justin Ranek leads the music direction of the play, with Leslie Hill serving as assistant musical director; stage direction by Bill Bauernfeind, with assistance by Renée Kujawski; and choreography by Moriah Grahl. The cast includes Kekoa Bicoy, Levi Brunette, Alexis Daoust, Sydney Felhofer, Brant Grahl, Moriah Grahl, Kole Mallien, Kaylee Mills, Izaac Polechek, Maddie Schopf, Paige Sullivan and Isabel Vreeke. They are joined by eighth graders Grace Alberts, Isabella Dippel and Cabria Zuehlke. The show will be performed Feb. 9, 10 and 11 at the Sturgeon Bay High School auditorium.
