Northside Christian College Musical
4-6 May, 2017
About the Musical
Based on the Gospel of Matthew, GODSPELL tells the story of Jesus and his troupe of eccentric followers, who join him as he teaches many lessons through a variety of storytelling techniques and a good dose of humour. An eclectic blend of songs, ranging in style from pop to vaudeville, is employed as Jesus’ parables are brought to life on the stage. When Jesus is finally betrayed and crucified, his followers have to ask themselves who this man was and why he came.
Written by Stephen Schwartz (WICKED, PIPPIN), this larger-than-life musical boasts an award winning score, and has played in countless touring companies, including the 2011 revival on Broadway in which both the script and music were refreshed.
Celebrating 20 Years
Perhaps most significantly, GODSPELL was the very first musical Northside Christian College produced with a full secondary school, and it is our great pleasure to bring a new version of this show to the stage for a new generation, 20 years later. We cannot wait for you to see this.
