Godspell

    Directed by: ERIK BALL
    Musical Direction: JACQUELINE WALKER
    Asst. Musical Direction: ADAM DUNSON
    Choreography by: CHRISTINE HARPER & CHRISTIAN ESCOBAR
     
    This rock opera was first produced on Broadway in 1971 it broke new ground in its stage treatment of the historical Jesus Christ. Based on the Gospel according to St Matthew it deals with the last days of Jesus, and includes dramatized versions of several well-known parables. And yet it is something more - a religious experience, a demonstration of joy, and a celebration of the family of man. In this variation, we find ourselves in a camp for troubled teens. Jesus Christ recruits a group of followers and teaches them various lessons. Will our doubters see the light? Will our forgotten, lost and hopeless band of delinquents learn their lessons well? Audiences of all ages are invited to find out as we interpret humanity's greatest events.
     
    *This production is presented by the Faith Conservatory honors class.
