Presenting the Cast of "Godspell" 2005

  

Stephan Clark Fay  (Jesus)

Stephan attends Good Heritage Academy.  He has been part of Royal Court for about three years, including a role as a Pharisee in the Royal Court 2003 Godspell production.  This time he takes the role of Jesus, which he feels honored and calls it “crazy, huh?”  Stephan’s hobbies include creating wrestling belts, writing poetry, and songs.  He said, “God has blessed this world with two great people.  Without them we could not do what the cast does.  Best act!!  Thank you, DeWayne and Patty, our producers/directors.”

 

 

CJ Johnson (Judas)

CJ repeats his role of Judas from the 2003 Royal Court Godspell production.  CJ graduated from Fulton High School and ITT Tech.  During his junior high years, he was selected for many roles; mostly lead roles in their productions.  He has also been in several skits in the church, the puppet ministry with his parents, and skits at Faith Fellowship Ministries.  He felt privileged to take “Forever His” to Stratford, Ont. for the past two years.  Watching them act with excellence has been a real inspiration to him.  He can see how God can be glorified through his performance.  He thanks his Dad, who taught him to do everything with integrity, and to his Mom who took his dreams seriously.  He said, “I have often dreamed of acting in a major production that would glorify God.”

Reneé graduated Salutatorian from Good Heritage Academy.  She has acted in only a few minor productions, before joining the 2003 Godspell cast, a role she repeats.  As the daughter of directors and playwrights, she has spent much time around theater productions and has always dreamed of being in a major production.  She thanks the Lord for all He has done in her life and her parents for always encouraging her in everything she has done.  She said, “I am enjoying being able to be a part of a Christian acting group dedicated to reaching the community through the fine arts.  ‘Godspell’ has been a wonderful experience and I look forward in doing more like it.”
