Prepare ye for the timeless tale of friendship, loyalty and love based on the Broadway musical that inspired a generation.
The original “Godspell” was the first major musical theatre offering from three-time Grammy and Academy Award-winner, Stephen Schwartz, and it took the world by storm. Boasting a score with chart topping songs, “Godspell JR.” is a sensation that continues to touch audiences!
A group of disciples help Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a wide variety of games, storytelling techniques and a hefty dose 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.
This workshop is open to ages 8-17.
Meetings will be held Monday-Friday from 12:00pm to 4:00pm and will run from June 5th –July 6th
PLEASE NOTE: There will be NO meeting Tuesday, July 4th.
Performance dates are: Friday, July 7th at 8:00pm; Saturday, July 8th at 2:00pm & 8:00pm; and Sunday, July 9th at 2:00pm.
