Grace College will present the musical production “Godspell” on April 15, 16, 21, 22 and 23. The production, based on the Gospel of Matthew, will be performed in the Little Theater located in Philathea Hall on the Grace College campus, 200 Seminary Dr., Winona Lake. The musical will begin at 7:30 p.m. each evening with the addition of a matinee at 1:30 p.m. on April 23 only.
“Godspell” was conceived and originally directed by John-Michael Tebelak while a student at Carnegie Mellon University. It features music by Stephen Schwartz who also produced music for “Wicked,” “Pocahontas” and “The Hunchback of Notre Dame.” “Godspell” has been on Broadway twice, was produced as a movie and has been performed thousands of times all over the world since it opened off Broadway in 1971.
Mike Yocum, professor at Grace College and director of “Godspell” said, “We are excited to present ‘Godspell’ for the first time at Grace. It’s funny, the music is very catchy and it does a wonderful job of powerfully presenting the life of Christ.” The production is comprised of a series of parables and several beloved songs including “Day by Day.”
Tickets for “Godspell” can be purchased at Tree of Life Bookstore in Winona Lake or Jazzman’s Café on the Grace College campus using cash or credit, or at the door with cash. Cost of admission is $7 for students and senior citizens and $9 for adults.
