A hit in the 1970s, and very controversial at the time, GODSPELL tells the story of Jesus Christ and his disciples through the parables of St Matthew’s gospel. Depicting Christ as a clown upset many in the 70’s but whether or not you have a faith, the story of love between a group of friends brought together when the world seems to be on the verge of collapse still rings so true today.
With songs such as Day by Day and Prepare Ye, a mixture of community and professional singers – some you will know from the TV who will be announced shortly – will entertain you with this wonderful story.
The music of GODSPELL is written by Stephen Schwartz has written other big hits since the 70s including Pippin and, of course, Wicked which continues to attract huge crowds and is now the fifth longest-running show in London’s West End. A new song was added to more recent productions, Hunter Parrish’s version of We Can Build A Beautiful City can be heard here and will feature in the show too.The show will be set in the circus, and a cast of 200 will bring the stage to life.
