Concordia Conservatory proudly presents the 20th annual Community Holiday Musical, The Spirit Society, written by Conservatory alumnus and current sophomore at the Juilliard School, J.P. Redmond. The production team includes stage director Greg Suss, music director Jon Klibonoff, and choreographer Ana Dimas.
In The Spirit Society, St. Barnabas is about to take over St. Nicholas's job as the embodiment of Christmas and other holidays as well. St. Nicholas (Santa) enlists the help of all the holiday spirits including Cupid, the Easter Bunny and the Great Pumpkin to form The Spirit Society. Together, they will shed light on the importance of love, faith, family and giving.
The Conservatory’s annual tuition-free musical is both a beloved community institution and an effective theatre arts outreach program, supported by generous donors who since 1999 have given over $500,000. In its 20-year history, the musical has seen over 1,500 performers and crew entertain over 18,000 enthusiastic audience members. This year's production features a cast and crew of 55 students from the Conservatory, College, and community.
