Celebrate ‘good news’


Dear Editor,

I invite everyone to a performance of Godspell, a musical inspired by the Gospels. Presented by the Lapeer Community Theatre at the PIX Theatre in downtown Lapeer, it is a celebration of the 'good news.' Ten actors (four men and six women, age 16 to 50+) will sing, dance and tell familiar stories, but in a new way.

Come and hear stories you know, such as the Prodigal Son, the Good Samaritan and the Sower and the Seeds. But this isn't a church service and it isn't Sunday school. It is not just for 'church people.' It is a celebration of the life of Jesus, and how his life and teaching transformed a ragamuffin group of ordinary people into a strong community, a family, that changed the world! You will laugh and cry! And sing along to Day by Day and others.

Godspell was not written to be performed in churches, but in theatres. It ends with the crucifixion, but it is not a Passion play. It is a play for all ages - definitely 'G' rated. You can bring your children and your parents. Youth groups. Senior citizens. Singles. Couples. Families. All will enjoy the show!

With high gas prices, isn't it nice to know that you can enjoy top quality entertainment right here in Lapeer? Tickets are $15 for adults, $9 for children under 12. Performances are Friday and Saturday, Sept. 26 and 27 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, Sept. 28 at 2:30 p.m.

Come to Godspell! Bring a group of 10 or more and save $2 per ticket. After every performance, you can greet cast members in the lobby. But we have added something special after the Sunday matinees— a 'talk back.' You will have the opportunity to sit with the cast and ask questions.

Tickets are on sale now. Call the PIX box office at 810-664-4824 or come by the box office Tuesday-Saturday, noon to 6 p.m..

I hope to see you there. If you have questions, e-mail me (sallye@rocketmail.com). I'm glad to talk about Godspell.
