Godspell JR.

Godspell JR.
Prepare ye for the timeless tale of friendship, loyalty and love based on the Broadway musical that inspired a generation.

The original Godspell was the first major musical theatre offering from three-time Grammy and Academy Award winner Stephen Schwartz and it took the world by storm.  Boasting a score with chart topping songs, Godspell JR. is a sensation that continues to touch audiences.

A group of disciples help Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a wide variety of games, storytelling techniques, and hefty dose of comic timing. An eclectic blend of songs ranging in style from pop to vaudeville is employed as the story of Jesus's life dances across the stage. Dissolving hauntingly into the Last Supper and the Crucifixion, Jesus's messages of kindness, tolerance, and love come vibrantly to life.

Godspell JR. can be performed virtually anywhere with the simplest of sets, costumes, lights, and music and is sure to be a crowd-pleaser!

We received an accompaniment CD with our "Godspell Jr." ShowKit. If we choose not to have a live pianist accompany our performances, this CD is our only option for pre-recorded tracks -- right?

Where to Start?

December 12, 2009
My school will be putting on Godspell, Jr. this school year. I usually like to show the students a movie of the production to familiarize them with it. In this case, I think it would do more harm than good. Do you have any suggestions on how to handle this particular play: costumes, set, etc.? The cast will consist of 4th - 8th graders.
