The App presents: Godspell
July 26 - July 27
The Appalachian Center for the Arts presents Godspell Jr., July 26 and 27, 2019 in Pikeville, KY.
The original 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. Boasting a score with chart topping songs, Godspell JR. is a sensation that continues to touch audiences.
A group of disciples help Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a wide variety of games, storytelling techniques and a hefty dose of comic timing. An eclectic blend of songs, ranging in style from pop to vaudeville, are 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.
Godspell JR. can be performed virtually anywhere with the simplest of sets, costumes, lights and music and is sure to be a crowd-pleaser!
