3 To Do: 'Godspell,' gardening and a hooley
1. Now playing: ‘Godspell’
Marco Lutheran Church has been in the play production business for 25 years. The first musicale performed in the now Great Room Theatre, was “Godspell,” in 1994.
This season, as a celebration of our 25th anniversary, the Community Theatre Project is bringing back “Godspell.”
The 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 7:30 p.m., March 1 and 2 in the Great Room Theatre at Marco Lutheran Church, 525 North Collier Blvd. Marco Island.
Tickets may be purchased at the church box office. Information: 239-394-5579.
