Godspell is a musical by Stephen Schwartz and a book by John-Michael Tebelak, composed of various musical parables from The Gospel According to Matthew. Jesus Christ recruits a group of followers and teaches them various lessons through song and dance. Toward the end of the second act, the show begins to follow a more linear narrative as Jesus is betrayed by Judas and eventually crucified.

We are also looking for musicians for the pit! Guitarists and drummers, please contact Bill Ivins at stagerightboyd1@gmail.com
