The Branson Regional Arts Council proudly presents the immensely successful rock opera, Godspell, at the Historic Owen Theatre from March 31 – April 10, 2022. Performances are at 7:00 pm with 2:00 pm Matinees on Sundays. This promises to be an inspiring and entertaining production for all ages!
Based on the Gospel according to St Matthew, Godspell is the story of 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.
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.”
The BRAC production is directed by Jeremiah Reeve with musical director Kyle Denton. Choreography is provided by Jacob Deck.
The cast features Christian Ross (Jesus) and Alex Harris (Judas), along with Heather Stolfa, Haley Moore-Haskin, Sonya Godfrey, Claire Denton, Jacob Deck, Kayleigh Dominish, Katy Kohler, Loran Polson, Abby Reeve and Taryn Huffman.
The production team also includes Karie Dykeman and Kim Hale (Producers), Pamela Meadows (Lighting Director), Mac Hill (Technical Director), Cole Hill (Sound Technician), Jeremiah Reeve (Set Design), Lisa Murphy (Media Coordinator), Lorie Best (Volunteer Coordinator), Josh Silvy (Theatre Operations), Marshall Meadows (Photography), and Jim Barber (BRAC Executive Director, Marketing and Design).
