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.

Two talented siblings, Adrian and Bridget Henry, portray Disciples in the musical. From Havertown, they have been involved at The Media Theatre for several years.
Bridget Henry
Bridget will be attending the 6th grade at Havertown Middle School this fall. She’s been seen in many shows at The Media Theatre including Children’s Series productions such as “Cinderella”, “Sleeping Beauty”, “Annie Jr.”, “Magic Tree House”, “Aladdin Jr.”, “Peter Pan And Wendy: A New Musical”, “The Real Story of Little Red Riding Hood”, “Alice In Wonderland”, and “Madagascar Jr.”. Last summer she was seen in the Camp Experience Musical “School Of Rock” and has also been in two Broadway Series professional productions: “Gypsy” and “Billy Elliot”.

She says that “Godspell” is about “a group of people coming together to have a good time. This production incorporates sports and makes it really fun!”

Her favorite song in the show is “Learn Your Lessons Well”. “I really like that style of music,” she says.
Adrian Henry
Her little brother Adrian will be attending the third grade at Manoa Elementary. He’s not lined up quite as impressive a list of credits as his older sister, but is certainly working on it! He’s been seen at The Media Theatre in Children’s productions such as “Alice In Wonderland” and “Madagascar Jr.”. Also, he has a big holiday season coming up as he will be playing the plum role of Chip in the Broadway Series professional production of Disney’s “Beauty And The Beast” from November 14 through January 15.

Adrian enjoys being in “Godspell” and says that the show is about “Friendship and love. My favorite song is “Day By Day” because it relates to that.”

“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
