“Godspell” is a musical retelling of the Gospel According to Matthew, in which Jesus shares parables with his followers. It seems fitting, then, that this year’s annual production by Riverhead Faculty and Community Theatre — temporarily homeless due to renovations at the high school — would land in the historic Jamesport Meeting House, which has its own history of religious services and has had numerous “resurrections” of its own over the last 275 years.  (more…)

Former Riverhead teachers Nancy Yakobiszyn-Auletti and George Moravek, co-founders of Riverhead Faculty and Community Theatre, in recent years found themselves far away from Eastern Long Island, in separate states. Both decided to move back last year, saying they each missed their friends and community. (Credit: Barbaraellen Koch photo)

Decades after they helped found the Riverhead Faculty Community Theatre in Riverhead schools, two close friends from the group found themselves living just hours apart — and nearly 1,000 miles from the East End of Long Island.  (more…)
