ABOUT THE SHOW (in general)...
Godspell was the first major musical theatre offering from three-time Grammy and Academy Award winner, Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin, Children of Eden), and it took the world by storm. Led by the international hit, "Day by Day," Godspell features a parade of beloved songs, including "Prepare Ye the Way of the Lord," "Learn Your Lessons Well," "All for the Best," "All Good Gifts," "Turn Back, O Man" and "By My Side."
A small group of people help Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a wide variety of games, storytelling techniques and hefty doses of comic timing. An eclectic blend of songs, ranging in style from pop to vaudeville, is employed as the story of Jesus' life dances across the stage. Dissolving hauntingly into the Last Supper and the Crucifixion, Jesus' messages of kindness, tolerance and love come vibrantly to life.
Boasting a score with chart topping songs, a book by a visionary playwright (John-Michael Tebelak) and a feature film, Godspell is a sensation that continues to touch audiences.
GODSPELL is presented through special arrangement with Theatre Maximus.
ABOUT OUR SHOW (in specific)...
Teens will enjoy in-depth training with professional theatre performers & directors through specialty workshops and rehearsal of a full-length (not the Jr version), full-scale production. Over a two-week period, students will stage an entire show -- complete with sets, costumes, sounds & lights! The end performance will be presented in-the-round, under the stars, amongst a community of friends, family, and the public for an incredibly immersive theatrical experience!
This production is a fund-raiser for Family Promise -- working to end homelessness... one family at a time! Proceeds will benefit this amazing organization!
