As a Christian woman, this show was a blessing to perform in. The musical was conceived by American, Kelly Nieto.

Angelico Christian Theatrical Society (ACTS) received first Australian rights to premiere this production in Adelaide.

It was a privilege to originate the role of Mary Magdalene in the Australian production of The Way of the Cross in 2013.

I even got to sing on a cast recording CD for this musical, which was a fantastic keepsake.

Mary Magdalene’s songs “Jesus Remember Me”, “Not Him”, and “No Hope For Me” were divine to sing.

Nieto’s orchestration and vocal arrangements were sublimely interwoven with middle-eastern nuances, and delivered the gospel message through heartfelt, memorable melodies. I sincerely thank Donna and Martin Brennan for inviting me into this company. I will always cherish this role.
