March 24 – April 10, 2022

by Stephen Schwartz and John-Michael Tebelak

Based on the Gospel according to Matthew, Godspell was the first musical theatre offering from composer Stephen Schwartz, who went on to write such well-known hits as Wicked, Pippin, and Children of Eden. Breaking new ground when it appeared on Broadway in 1971, it features a comedic troupe of eccentric players who team up with Jesus to teach his lessons in a new age through parables, games, and tomfoolery. Featuring the international hit, “Day by Day”, as well as an eclectic blend of songs ranging from pop to vaudeville, Jesus’ final days come to life onstage. Even after the haunting crucifixion, Jesus’ message of kindness, tolerance and love lives vibrantly on.
