Memorial Opera House presents ‘Godspell’
“Godspell,” an ancient word for Gospel, is a lively show based on St. Matthew from the Bible. It is a high-energy, con- temporary musical that tells the story of Jesus and the commu- nity of believers who followed him.
The Memorial Opera House’s version of “Godspell” is like you’ve never see it be- fore! Taking place on top of a roof of an apartment building, the occupants join Jesus, played by Zachary Gipson (Chesterton) to perform many of the parables from St. Mat- thew in a fun and engaging way.
“Godspell” features a spar- kling score by Stephen Schwartz, who composed Broadway’s hit “Wicked.” It is a groundbreaking and unique reflection on the life of Jesus, with a message of kindness, tolerance and love, and a string of well-loved songs, led by the international hit, “Day by Day.” Other great songs in- clude “Prepare Ye The Way of the Lord,” “Learn Your Les- sons Well,” “All For The Best,” and “All Good Gifts.” Performance dates for “Godspell” are October 2, 3, 9, 10, 16, and 17 at 8 p.m., and October 4, 11, and 18 at 2 p.m.
