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 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.

Godspell Director’s Vision Letter
50 years ago, “Godspell” hit the world by storm. Mainstream Christianity was experiencing its first decline in recent history, and a group of drama students at Carnegie Mellon University came together to produce a script and score (by Stephen Schwartz) that would simultaneously awaken a new group of believers and challenge the mainstream to consider Jesus’ actions in the Bible through a fresh lens. The music, costumes, staging, and script are an atypical recitation of the Gospel, and many audience members did not originally understand the context for these choices. The overarching message is that Jesus came for everyone! Godspell seeks to show a diverse group of individuals and their encounter with our Savior as He shares parables, teaches by example, and ultimately gives His life for us.  Then, 10 years ago, the 2012 Godspell revival expanded the original score in challenging and invigorating ways, and breathed fresh Spirit into the story once again. We pray that God will breathe that same Spirit into our community as we present Godspell this fall.
