GODSPELL is whimsical, unique, and contemporary ensemble show. It speaks to the passion of Jesus Christ, to teach love and joy in the hearts of people, rather than hate and sadness. The show is composed of various musical parables from The Gospel According to Matthew. Jesus Christ recruits a group of followers and teaches them various lessons through song and dance. Toward the end of the second act, the show begins to follow a more linear narrative as Jesus is betrayed by Judas and eventually crucified.
