Important Note from CMTsj (4/16/20): “The spring production of Godspell has been postponed. The Rising Stars are still rehearsing in a virtual learning environment and cannot wait to share their talents with our dedicated community.”
CMT Rising Stars* tell the timeless tale of friendship, loyalty and love based on the Gospel According to St. Matthew, Godspell.
A small group of people help Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a wide variety of games, storytelling techniques and hefty doses of comic timing. An eclectic blend of songs, ranging in style from pop to vaudeville, is 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.
Godspell was the first major musical theatre offering from three-time Grammy and Academy Award winner, Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin, Children of Eden), and it took the world by storm.
Led by the international hit “Day by Day,” Godspell features a parade of beloved songs, including “Prepare Ye the Way of the Lord,” “Learn Your Lessons Well,” “All for the Best,” “All Good Gifts,” “Turn Back, O Man” and “By My Side.”
*This CMT Rising Stars production features a cast of talented performers, ages 8-14.
