This successful rock opera took the world by storm when it debuted on Broadway in 1971 and is the first musical theatre offering from composer Stephen Schwartz (who went on to write such well-known hits as Wicked, Pippin, and Children of Eden). Based on the Gospel according to Matthew, it broke new ground in its dramatization of Jesus’ parables and the community that formed around them. The play features a comedic troupe of eccentric characters in their personal journeys to find kindness, charity, acceptance, and – most of all – love. This joyful musical is appropriate for all ages, and features a vibrant and eclectic musical score including the international hit “Day by Day.” Godspell is produced by The Acting Program at Chapel Hill School of Musical Arts.
