Godspell was the first major musical theatre offering from three-time Grammy and Academy Award winner, Stephen Schwartz; and it took the world by storm.  The 2012 Version is a masterful retelling of the original sensation, injected with contemporary references and dazzling new arrangements. Led by the international hit, "Day by Day," Godspell features a parade of beloved songs, including "Prepare Ye the Way of the Lord," "Learn Your Lessons Well," "All for the Best," "All Good Gifts," "Turn Back, O Man" and "By My Side."

A small group of people help Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a wide variety of games, storytelling techniques and a hefty dose of comic timing. An eclectic blend of songs, ranging in style from pop to vaudeville, is employed as the story of Jesus' life dances across the stage. Dissolving hauntingly into the Last Supper and the Crucifixion, Jesus' messages of kindness, tolerance and love come vibrantly to life.

Open seating. All ticket sales are final. Please review our ticket policy prior to purchase. Purchased tickets will be held at Will Call under purchaser's name the day of the performance. If you'd like to pick up you tickets prior to the show, please stop by the Center for the Arts during business hours the week of the performance.
