MEET THE HENRY SIBLINGS OF HAVERTOWN WHO ARE IN MEDIA THEATRE'S 'GODSPELL' THRU AUG. 27
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 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.
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
