The cast of “Godspell” at Colts Neck High School

The Colts Neck High School Dramatic Arts Club is presenting the musical “Godspell” as their spring production, under the direction of Dawn Ferro.

A small group of people help Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a wide variety of games, storytelling techniques, and hefty doses of comic timing. An eclectic blend of songs, ranging in style from pop to vaudeville, is employed as the story of Jesus’ life dances across the stage.     Led by the international hit, “Day by Day,” “Godspell” features a parade of beloved songs, including “Prepare Ye the Way of the Lord,” “Learn Your Lessons Well,” “All for the Best,” “All Good Gifts,” “Turn Back, O Man,” and “By My Side.”

Lead cast members and roles are Alec Gousset (Jesus), Evan Pelaia (John the Baptist/Judas), Josh Cohen (George), Dan Freeman (Telly), CJ Pinheiro (Nick), Amanda Grieco (Ana Maria), Gab Grieco (Celisse), Kristen Villaverde (Lindsay), Lexi Messo (Uzo), and Amanda Williams (Morgan). The pit choir includes Anthony Mallozzi, Sam Raso, Grace Huegel, Morgan Swidryk, Sara Burke, Regan Riehl, Katie McDonough, Nikki Quintero, Erin Potter, Carmela Apostle, Meredith Varner, Hanah Koch, Leah Wilson, Jackie Flanders, Nicholas Goranites, Amanda Martin, and Abigail Eloe.
