CHESTER SPRINGS, PA — SALT Performing Arts presents Godspell. Godspell was the first major musical theatre offering from three-time 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,” “All Good Gifts,” “Turn Back, O Man” and “By My Side.”
The story is as follows: a small group of people help Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a wide variety of games, storytelling techniques, and hefty doses 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.
Boasting a score with chart topping songs, a book by a visionary playwright (John-Michael Tebelak) and a feature film, Godspell is a sensation that continues to touch audiences.
“The creative Directorial team of Godspell coupled with the incredibly talented cast are making a version of this show that will KNOCK THE AUDIENCE’S SOCKS OFF! It is powerfully innovative, outside-of-the-box, and probably the most fun two hours of musical theatre that has ever graced the SALT stage!” Comments Lauren McComas President and Artistic Director of SALT Performing Arts.
