Northview Drama and Music departments will present "Godspell," conceived and originally directed by John-Michael Tebelak with music and new lyrics by Stephen Schwartz, on March 13-14. Based on the "Gospel According to St. Matthew", it boasts a string of well-loved songs, led by "Day by Day."
Drawing from various theatrical traditions, such as pantomime, charades, and vaudeville, "Godspell" is a unique reflection of the life of Jesus and most importantly, with a message of kindness, tolerance and love. Normally set in an urban and gritty environment, a junkyard or abandoned play ground, our show is set in a modern high school whose students display a variety of different personalities.
It's not too late to be a patron ($15 gets two reserved seats in the orchestra section), sponsor ($25 gets two center orchestra seats) or angel ($50 or more gets two front center orchestra seats) for the show. All contributors get their names in the program.
Tickets, which are reserved seating, will be available after Feb. 28 in the Media Center at Northview High School. Tickets can be secured by calling Nancy Ewing at 448-2661 Ext. 1235 during the school day.
