Wow! I had the opportunity to attend a production of “Godspell” at the Fairfield Center for Creative Arts recently and I was blown away by the amazing talent we have performing right here in our own city.

Every one of the performers had the most incredible voices and acting skills. The entire ensemble had incredible chemistry and energy and engaged the audience throughout the performance. No need to travel to Sacramento or San Francisco when you have this level of talent in your own backyard.

My only regret was that the audience was small and not a fitting tribute to these talented and hardworking individuals.

Wake up, Fairfield! Get out and see what this wonderful venue has to offer. I guarantee you won’t be disappointed. Whether you are into the religious side of the Easter season or not, the message of love and connectedness is universal.

    I sure loved, "Godspell," many many years ago (Decades), when," Val Players," did it up in Vacaville, with a super, talented, great sounding band (I was the drummer>>LOL). And for the first time since my school band days and Naval Recruit Drum & Bugle Corps, I actually had to read the charts since we all had to be on the same page, being perfectly timed with what was going on, on the stage. Anyway that was a fun experience. Now if anyone still wants an aging, nearly 65 yr. old drummer, (Jazz preferred, but rock ok :-) )), just let, Glen Faison, know that it is OK to email me.

    You could try asking the owner of tweedhut music in Vacaville... He has a Blues Band... Matty T.... he might know someone wanting a drummer.
