Ballyhoo Theatre presents the classic musical Godspell
Godspell, based on the Gospels and parables of Jesus, remains one of the most popular rock musicals of all time. Audiences will have an opportunity to enjoy it this month in Edmonds.
The playful and poignant score by Stephen Schwartz (Wicked) includes such songs as “God Save the People,” “All Good Gifts” and the international hit “Day By Day.”
Messages of love, generosity, joy and faith are presented in song, dance and theatrical play in this exuberant production.
Created by John-Michael Tebelak as a college project in 1970, Godspell was re-scored by Stephen Schwartz before moving to off-Broadway in 1971 and then to Broadway in 1976 after becoming one of the longest-running off-Broadway musicals.
A successful Broadway revival was mounted in 2011. Ballyhoo Theatre will be presenting this updated version.
Godspell is directed by Shileah Corey, choreographed by Emma Ruhl, and features a cast of 27 talented actors, ages 14-18.
Performances are at 2 and 7 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 24, and at 2 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 25.
Tickets are $5 and can be purchased at the door. All performances are at Edmonds Heights K-12, 23200 100th Ave W, Edmonds. Call 425-345-0991 for more information.
