The Woodland Opera House Education Program presents “Godspell, JR” from Aug. 13 to 27. Prepare ye for the timeless tale of friendship, loyalty and love based on the Broadway musical that inspired a generation.
The original “Godspell” was the first major musical theatre offering from three-time Grammy and Academy Award-winner Stephen Schwartz, and it took the world by storm. Boasting a score with chart-topping songs, “Godspell JR” is a sensation that continues to touch audiences.
A group of disciples help Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a wide variety of games, storytelling techniques and a hefty dose of comic timing. An eclectic blend of songs, ranging in style from pop to vaudeville, are employed as the story of Jesus’ life dances across the stage. Dissolving hauntingly into the Last Supper and the Crucifixion, Jesus’ messages of kindness, tolerance, and love come vibrantly to life.
This production is performed by an all-youth cast (ages 11-18) at the historic venue at 340 Second St. in Woodland. “And there’s no question that you’ll be wowed by the talent of these young people,” a news release said.
