St. Odilia MusicalsThe MISSION of the St. Odilia Parish Musical is to share the good news of God's unending love and to spread the message of Jesus Christ, by sharing Biblical and life-changing stories through theater and song.
Our purpose is to build community by involving people of all ages, in all aspects of the production, including cast, choir, band, directors, crew and audience.
Our goal is to create a ministry that brings all generations together. God has blessed all of us with many gifts that we are called to share with each other. We will support and encourage one another as we work to spread the message of God's love to all who would hear.
The St. Odilia yearly Parish Musical is produced and presented by parishioners of all ages.
The Musical is presented typically just before the beginning of Lent in February. It is a fun event and a wonderful opportunity to get to know members of our community. This is a large effort for the community and there are "roles" for actors, singers and musicians as well as people who may not want to act or sing.
Calls go out late in the year for casting and people who can also build sets, work with sound and lighting and other behind-the-scenes activities. Watch the bulletin for details on when and where you can sign up for this fun activity.
