“Godspell” now at The Summit Playhouse

9312474_origThe Summit Playhouse, our local non-profit community theater,  has mounted more than 300 productions, and for their latest they have chosen the immensley popular musical GODSPELL.  Originally GODSPELL opened Off-Broadway in 1971, moved to Broadway in 1976, and was later made into a movie.

GODSPELL, a fan favorite for more nearly 40 years, features several familiar songs including “Day By Day,” “Prepare Ye The Way Of The Lord,” “Learn Your Lessons Well,” “Turn Back, O Man” and “By My Side.”

This Stephen Schwartz classic is a musical retelling of the Gospel of Matthew where we find Jesus bringing several parables to life with an eclectic blend of songs ranging in style from pop to vaudeville.

This ensemble cast brings joy and enthusiasm to this very special production, which is sure to be a hit with everyone.  So don’t wait to get your tickets!  They are on sale now and can be purchased by going to brownpapertickets.com/event/2142663.
