Acting Out Playhouse, in conjunction with SummerStar Theatre, will present “Godspell Junior,” with two performances planned for Saturday and Sunday, July 22 and 23, at the William and Helen Richards Theatre (formerly Orange Hall Theatre) on the Middletown campus of SUNY Orange.

Boasting a score with chart topping songs, “Godspell Junior” is a sensation that continues to touch audiences. A group of disciples help Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a variety of storytelling techniques, a hefty dose of comic timing and current real-world reference. An eclectic blend of songs — ranging in style from pop to vaudeville — is employed as the story of Jesus’ life dances across the stage. Dissolving hauntingly into the Last Supper and the Crucifixion, then resounding in triumphant resurrection, Jesus’ messages of kindness, tolerance and love come vibrantly to life in a fresh way.

Under the direction of Terry Odell and musical direction by Mady Odell, the cast of 13 Orange County area performers, ages 11 to 14, are heavily immersed in a two-week intensive theater workshop to prepare for this high-energy production. Tickets are $15 and available for purchase at www.theactingoutplayhouse.net, or $18 at the box office. Small children under 2 on laps are free.

The newly named William and Helen Richards Theatre at Orange Hall, is universally accessible. General parking is available in the college parking lot at the intersection of Wawayanda and Grandview avenues.
