The weekend of February 22-24, the SAS Players will bring Godspell to the stage of McCrory Hall for the Performing Arts on the St. Andrew’s-Sewanee School campus. The musical is based on the Gospel of Matthew which follows the life of Jesus from his baptism to his crucifixion.
Opening off-Broadway in 1971 with music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz and book by John-Michael Tebelak, Godspell has been bringing crowds of people to theatres all over the world every year since it opened. The twenty-member cast and crew of the SAS production will be using the 2011 Broadway revival script. Sewanee resident Pete Haight plays the role of Jesus.
Performances will be Friday, February 22 and Saturday, February 23 at 7:00 p.m. and Sunday, February 24 at 4:00 p.m. at McCrory Hall for the Performing Arts on the St. Andrew’s-Sewanee School campus. Admission is $7 for adults and $5 for children. There are no advance ticket sales. Tickets are available at the door.
