After the show we walked across the street to the Olney Ale House, sat outside under cover, had MD brews, ribs, sandwiches (fried oysters; beef), and fried catfish. Wonderful menu and food, great atmosphere, reasonable as heck and old-world neighborhood place you're lucky to find.

Description

One of the biggest Off-Broadway and Broadway successes of all time, Godspell tells the Gospel According to St. Matthew in a pageant of clowning, pantomime, charades, acrobatics, and vaudeville. Featuring an eclectic and sparking score by Stephen Schwartz that includes rock, folk, gospel, and Broadway music, Godspell boasts a string of recognizable songs, including “Day by Day,” “Prepare Ye the Way of the Lord,” “Learn Your Lessons Well,” and “By My Side.”

This new summer family attraction is produced under the auspices of Olney Theatre Center’s young artist education program, Olney Theatre Institute. The production will feature young professional actors from the finest regional talent and from outside the immediate area.
