The Performing Arts students from St. Joseph High School will present Godspell on March 13 – 16 at Red Deer College Studio A (100 College Blvd, Red Deer) at 7:00 p.m. There will be a matinee performance on March 16 at 1:00 p.m.

Tickets are $20 and can be purchased through the school office.

Godspell tells the story about a small group of people 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, 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. Because of its small technical demands and minimal cast size, it has become a staple of theatre companies, large and small. (https://www.mtishows.com/godspell-2012)
