Godspell 2012 Revised Version
Online Screening June 3, 4, & 5 at 7:00 2021
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 "Learn Your Lessons Well," "All for the Best," "All Good Gifts," and "By My Side." Godspell just celebrated 50 years since it first opened and was revived on Broadway as recently as 2012!
A small group of people, while glued to their smartphones, blindly walk into an abandoned concert venue. Jesus attempts to help them reconnect and find the joy in true human interaction through the parables. One by one they begin to join in the wide variety of games, storytelling, and fun. An eclectic blend of songs, ranging in style from pop to vaudeville helps convey the story of Jesus' life as it dances across the stage. Dissolving hauntingly into the Last Supper and the Crucifixion, Jesus' messages of kindness, tolerance and love come vibrantly to life.

KEVIN GLEASON (Set Designer, Lighting Designer, Technical Director) Since 2005 Kevin has been haunting the aisles of the New Canaan High School Auditorium. As we embark on this brave new world we hope that the students will still find joy in building and then "dumpstering" the sets. My appreciation for all the hard work the students do and all the time they give to create these amazing experiences can not be understated. Thank you to everyone that is here with us and welcome to our new friends. Please support the arts
