CCT’s Stage Right Theatre presents “Godspell”, the beloved musical from Stephen Schwartz, the Grammy® and Academy Award®-winning composer of Wicked. This timeless tale of friendship, loyalty, and love has touched the hearts of countless theatergoers all over the world. This immensely successful rock opera needs little introduction, but when it was first produced on Broadway in 1971 it broke new ground in its stage treatment of the historical Jesus Christ. Based on the Gospel according to St Matthew it deals with the last days of Jesus, and includes dramatized versions of several well-known parables. And yet it is something more – a religious experience, a demonstration of joy, and a celebration of the family of man.
CCT will present Godspell at the Egyptian Theatre, 135 N. 2nd Street in downtown DeKalb from this Thursday, January 5th through Sunday, January 8th. Visit the Egyptian Theatre’s website for more information and to purchase tickets.
