Godspell Feb. 27-March 1
The Performing Arts Center is excited to be partnering with Theatre & Performance to present Broadway favorite “Godspell” as part of their 2019-2020 Main Stage Series. The show opens Thursday, Feb. 27 at 7:30 p.m., and will run through March 1.
In the first major musical theatre offering from Grammy and Academy Award winner, Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin, Children of Eden), a small group of people help Jesus Christ tell parables from the Gospel of St. Matthew. An eclectic blend of songs, ranging in style from pop to vaudeville, is employed as Jesus’ messages of kindness, tolerance, and love come vibrantly to life.
Written in 1971, Godspell embodies the spirit of 70’s generations rock musicals. Since its inception, this show has toured the country and been a musical theatre standard in schools, universities and churches. Boasting a score with chart-topping songs, led by “Day by Day”, old favorites like “Prepare Ye” and “By My Side” will be easily recognized by audiences.
Godspell Director Lisa Abbott notes, “The magic of this show is the community it creates not just with the cast but with the audience as well. The message of the show is about acceptance and love and the cast and crew have enjoyed creating ways to tell that story with open hearts and open minds.”Tickets are on sale now at the PAC Box Office. Discounts are available for Georgia Southern faculty, staff, and students.
