Today we turn from St. Paul’s long history to an event that many of us remember well: the performance of “Fat, Fat Jehoshaphat” on April 8, 1990.
This “musical that teaches the the power of prayer” required the efforts of several dozen parishioners of all ages, as well as our choirmaster, Albert Melton, and the rector, Bruce Rodgers.
Our first photograph shows a rehearsal, with the choir and their director, Jennifer Johnston, on the left side of the altar. Left to right, they are:
- Jennifer Johnston (Choir Director, with guitar)
- Beth Mahony
- Kirk Hauser
- Judy Condo
- Grace Dennis
- Sarah Feedore (in front)
To the right of the altar are:
- Chris Kleinman (Page)
- Happy McPartlin (Chief Priest)
- Julie McPartlin (High Priest)
- Jon Bugler (King’s Guard, in front with head turned)
Here we see part of the stage crew building the set. They are:
- Martha Murphy
- Andrew Murphy
- Ann Jaquish
And here is a photograph of the luncheon that followed the performance. On the left is Donna Williams, the only person we have been able to identify so far.
Finally, here is the complete cast listing for this performance.
