Burnside High School's senior production of 'Godspell' by Stephen Schwarz (Wicked, The Hunchback of Notre Dame).
One of the biggest off-Broadway and Broadway successes of all time, Godspell is based primarily on the Gospel According to St. Matthew. Featuring a sparkling, seminal score by Stephen Schwartz, Godspell boasts a string of recognisable songs, led by the international hit, "Day By Day."
As the cast of actor makes it way through "Prepare Ye The Way Of The Lord," "Save The People," "Learn Your Lessons Well," "Bless the Lord," "All For The Best," "All Good Gifts," "Turn Back, O Man" and "By My Side," the parables of Jesus Christ come humanly and hearteningly to life. The show also touchingly presents the story of Jesus' last moments beginning with the Last Supper.
The main story of Godspell is portrayed in the show's subtext--in the way the players interact with their leader, coming together to create a loving community.
