Our showcase of past episodes of Radio Free Charleston that feature songs from The Contemporary Youth Arts Company production, MARY: A Rock Opera, continues. This week we’re going back to 2008, the first year that we covered the show. Mary was played by Molly Means, Gabriel was played by Tanya Dillon-Page and Elizabeth was played by our own Melanie Larch. You can see the three come together to sing the famous “Trio” in the above “half-episode” of the show, from November 2008..
