Godspell is an artistic interpretation of Jesus’ teachings in the Gospel of Matthew. Essentially, it is about the formation of a community, bonded by Jesus’ instructions and forever changed by His love. We know these first followers of Christ were the beginning of the Church, and that contagious energy, which spread throughout the world, is brought to life in this production. The musical is not a theologically based production, yet as Christians, we can identify the truth embedded in the characters by what they say and what they do. For our depiction, we are guided by Matthew 19:14. It is written, “But Jesus said, ‘Leave the children alone, and do not forbid them to come to Me; for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.'” I hope you come and play with us as we illustrate forgiveness, love, and joy only found in Jesus Christ.
