“GODSPELL” at Players of Utica
PLAYERS OF UTICA PRESENTS ‘Godspell’
A Joyous, Emotional, Uplifting, Must-See Musical
UTICA, N.Y., March 30, 2018 – Players of Utica continues its 105th season with Godspell. Randy Fields directs this wonderful musical by Stephen Schwartz, with musical direction by Bonnie Hibbard. Subscriptions and single tickets are available for purchase online any time or at the box office during performances.
ABOUT THE SHOW:
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”.
A small group of people helps 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.
Boasting a score with chart topping songs, a book by a visionary playwright (John-Michael Tebelak) and a feature film, Godspell is a sensation that continues to touch audiences.
