The Arts Center of Kershaw County is proud to announce Godspell!
Focusing on the timeless power of hope, Godspell is structured as a series of parables based on the Gospel of Matthew. Godspell features and eclectic blend of songs, ranging in style from pop to vaudeville, as the story of Jesus’ life dances across the stage. With music composed by Stephen Schwartz (Wicked) with book by John-Michael Tebelak, Godspell was an immediate blockbuster hit upon its release in the 1970’s.
Godspell began as a project by drama students at Carnegie Mellon University and then moved to the off-off-Broadway theater La MaMa Experimental Theatre Club in the East Village of Manhattan. The show was rescored for an off-Broadway production, which opened on May 17, 1971, and became a long-running success. Many productions have followed worldwide, including a 2011 Broadway revival. Now we are proud to bring Godspell to the Arts Center Main Stage!
