Bryn Athyn College presents Godspell. Godspell was the first major musical theatre offering from Grammy and Academy Award winner, Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin, Children of Eden), and it took the world by storm. 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,” and “By My Side.”
A small group of people help Jesus Christ tell different parables using a wide variety of games and storytelling techniques. 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.
Boasting a score with chart topping songs and a book by a visionary playwright (John-Michael Tebelak), Godspell is a sensation that continues to touch audiences.
