St. Francis High School Presents “Godspell” for its Fall Production
St. Francis High School presents “Godspell.” for its fall production and it’s just around the corner, make sure to reserve tickets early. Performances will be from November 7 – 9, 2014. Ticket sales begin September 29.
Music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz (Pippin, Wicked, Pocahontas) and book by John-Michael Tebelak, this immensely successful rock opera needs little introduction, but when it was first produced in Broadway in 1971 it broke new grounds 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. The cast are conceived as players, improvising scenery and costumes and using many well-known theatrical devices, pantomime vaudeville and varied musical styles, to interpret one of humanity’s greatest events.
