Godspell is a fun-filled musical written by Stephen Schwartz; the book was written by John-Michael Tebelak. On May 17, 1971, it opened Off-Broadway. It has toured and was made into a revival ever since then. In 2011, the Godspell revival made its way to Broadway! It lasted almost a year and was released over the years for all theaters to use. One of the show’s songs, “Day by Day,” even reached #13 on the Billboard pop singles chart in 1972.
This musical is about a series of parables i.e. short stories that teach a moral or spiritual lesson, based mainly on the Gospel of Matthew. The parables are dressed up by improvisation and a variety of modern music set to fit with the passion of Christ. Throughout the show, Judas, played by FTC student, Londel Collier, and Jesus, played by FTC student, Domenic Pellegrini, are never on the same page. Judas believes he can always beat out Jesus; unfortunately, in the end all of the disciples turn on Jesus.
This production of Godspell, is directed by the esteemed and very talented Professor Marie Danvers. Tickets are $18 for adults and $15 for seniors and students.
So, please join us for an enjoyable evening.
