COLUMBIA, Ky. -- A group of Lindsey Wilson College students have a "once-in-a-lifetime" opportunity to learn about the theater from the pros.

Members of the Lindsey Wilson Players have been invited to travel April 13-15 to New York to meet with the cast of the revival of Godspell. The rock musical about the gospel of St. Matthew is currently being produced at Broadway's Circle in the Square Theatre; the Lindsey Wilson Players will produce it April 25-28 at the college's V.P. Henry Auditorium.

The Lindsey Wilson production will be directed by Assistant Professor of Theatre Robert Brock with musical direction by Associate Professor of Music Gerald L. Chafin.

While in New York, members of the Lindsey Wilson Players will get to see a performance of Godspell and also attend a workshop led by cast members.

For the last couple weeks, members of the Lindsey Wilson Players have been calling alumni and friends of the college to raise money to fund the trip.

One of the benefactors was LWC Associate Professor of Communication Dan Koger, who gave $1,000 to the Lindsey Wilson Players.

"It is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that can't afford to be missed," Koger said.

Cast member Hannah Peck of Columbia predicted that Godspell "is going to be a fun, yet moving performance that is sure to be one people will remember."

Added fellow cast member Chaz Dun of Columbia: "From the dancing to the singing, Godspell is going to blow people away, I think."

Brock said the Lindsey Wilson Players appreciate the assistance they have received from alumni and friends of the college.

"It's been a really great response so far," Brock said. "This opportunity came up at the last minute, and I wanted to find a way to let the students make this trip because it will be an incredible experience for them. They will get to learn about musical theater from some of the pros."
