'GODSPELL' HAS FINAL SHOW AT MEDIA THEATRE AUGUST 27....WALLINGFORD'S LEO KONCOS LOVES THE SHOW'S LESSONS
The Media Theatre revitalizes the classic musical
“Godspell” now through August 27. The show, with music by Stephen Schwartz and
a book by John Michael Tebelak, features a cast of children, teens, and adults
as the followers of Jesus while they humorously act out his parables from the
Book of Matthew.
Leo Koncos is one of the Disciples. He is 13, lives
in Wallingford and attends Strath Haven High School as a freshman. He was seen
previously at The Media Theatre in “Into The Woods”, “School Of Rock”, “Real
Story of Little Red Riding Hood”, and “13”. At Strath Haven Middle School he
was in “Tarzan” and “The Little Mermaid”. He studies acting at The Media Theatre.
Leo says, “I believe “Godspell” is about
following someone, and learning from that person. The show appeals to people of
all religions (or no religion!) and age groups because it leaves out the more
religious/miraculous parts of the story of Jesus and focuses more on his
“My favorite parable is the Altar parable because
it highlights the importance of forgiveness,” Leo said. “In the parable, two
brothers must forgive each other before they can offer a gift at an altar. I
believe forgiveness is an important lesson to learn.”
He summed it up by saying, “The Media Theatre’s
version of “Godspell” is different because it is set in a playground
environment and has a large sports theme. This makes it have less of a Broadway
feel and a more natural tone throughout the show.”
“Godspell” at The
Media Theatre is directed by Roger Ricker, with music direction by Ben Kapilow.
Austy Hicks plays the role of Jesus. For tickets, call 610-891-0100 or visit
