Timeless story lessons, Talented cast, Terrific venue. Wonderfully entertaining updated musical with an eclectic variety of music for everyone, laughable delivery of humor, and an infusion of local spots and current events. Not to be missed!

It is full of energy and music. The message of the play is interesting (if you are of Christian faith then you would understand it even more). BUt generally, I recommend it simply because of the acting and singing...just spectacular.

Description

by Stephen Schwartz

and John-Michael Tebelak

directed by Robert Smyth

musical direction by G. Scott Lacy

choreography by Colleen Kollar Smith

Featuring Lance Arthur Smith, Jessica Couto, Season Duffy, Tracy Hughes, Jon Lorenz, Leonard Patton and Greg Thompson.

Before he wrote Wicked, Working, or Pippin, Stephen Schwartz wrote Godspell. Go back another 1,970 years, and you’ll find a guy from Galilee who changed the world. Now Lamb’s Players returns to one of its most memorable shows of all time with a new multiethnic cast and a sensational band, in a stirring production that incorporates Schwartz’s recent musical additions to his now-classic score. Packed with infectious songs like “Bless the Lord,” “It’s All for the Best,” and the beloved anthem “Day by Day,” Godspell tells the Greatest Story ever told – in a style that blends commedia, vaudeville, even Saturday Night Live-esque shtick – with music that ranges from cabaret to pop to reggae to show-stopping musical theatre. Godspell is a great time at the theatre – perfect for the whole family.
