What is the Book of Judith?

The Book of Judith, created by Michael Rubenfeld and Sarah Garton Stanley, is a musical play about a self-annointed preacher man who is passionately driven to change the lives of others. After a chance meeting with a quadriplegic woman named Judith Snow, theatre artist Matthew Goldberg believes he has “seen the light”. With the help of his director, Shauna Coupland, and her best friend, disabled artist, Pippa McLaren, Matthew has managed to coral a fully integrated group of choristers with and without disability, to help him tell, for the first time, his inspirational, maniacal and deeply suspect tale of Judith Snow. The Book of Judith takes us from innocence to ignorance and through to the other side – a truer place of transformation.

The Book of Judith stars Michael Rubenfeld and features Sarah Garton Stanley, Judith Snow and a revolving cast comprised of local members of the community the work is performed in. It is directed by Sarah Garton Stanley.

The Whelming Begins!

We are KNEE deep in rehearsals, almost at the end of WEEK ONE. Its been pretty remarkable so far. Alex Bulmer has arrived from England and Nick Carpenter is here from Montreal working with Andrew on music. Tanya Greve, our Stage Manager and Beth Kates, our Costume Designer, have also been in rehearsal, and things are really starting to move.

THIS IS REALLY HAPPENING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am filled with so much emotion right now. I can't quite believe we are actually putting this up on its feet. We did a work through of the entire show with all the music with Andrew and Alex and Nick and the only word I can use to describe the experience is: AMAZING.

There is no doubt in any of our minds that this is going to be quite spectacular. Now all we must do is MAKE THIS PLAY.

Here is a pretty wonderful little video of us all singing "DEAR SIN" from the show. We are still learning, but still, pretty NICE.
