Godspell

GODSPELL

Music and Lyrics by Stephen Schwartz

Book by John-Michael Tebelak

 

Director:  Brandon Hanks

Music Director:  Mike Raunick

Choreographer: Mariel Greenlee

Godspell was the first major musical theater offering from three-time Grammy and Academy Award winner, Stephen Schwartz (WickedPippinChildren 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 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 Eclipse production features emerging artists, many of whom are alumni of Summer Stock Stage.
