Directed by Maggie Pangrazio

Book by John Michael Tebelak, Music and Lyrics by Stephen Schwartz

Conceived and originally directed by John Michael Tebelak, with music and new lyrics by Stephen Schwartz, Godspell is one of the biggest off-Broadway and Broadway successes of all time.  Based on the Gospel According to St. Matthew, and featuring a sparkling score by Stephen Schwartz, Godspell boasts a string of well-loved songs, led by the international hit, “Day By Day.” As the cast performs “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,” the parables of Jesus Christ come humanly and hearteningly to life.  Drawing from various theatrical traditions, such as clowning, pantomime, charades, acrobatics and vaudeville, Godspell  is a groundbreaking and unique reflection on the life of Jesus, with a message of kindness, tolerance and love.

This is a diverse, ensemble show.  Flexible casting and all roles featured.  Each actor will bring his or her own personality traits to the character,  All roles open.  Non-Equity, no pay.  All types and ethnicities are encouraged to audition. Ages 16 and up.
