Godspell by Stephen Schwartz & John-Michael Tebelak

Produced by Winnipeg Studio Theatre as part of the Winnipeg Fringe Festival, July 2014

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. 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 group of individuals help Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a wide variety of games, music, storytelling techniques and hefty doses of comic timing. In this process, they come together to form a community. 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.
