Godspell in Kingsport

If you are near Kingsport this weekend, do check out Godspell at Dobyns-Bennett High School. My lovely is the choral director at D-B and she along with the drama department is putting on this musical. It opens tonight.

Here is the promo:

Conceived and originally directed by John-Michael Tebelak, with music and new lyrics by Stephen Schwartz, "Godspell" is one of the biggest off-Broadway and Broadway successes of all time.

Based on the Gospel According to St. Matthew, and featuring a sparkling score by Stephen Schwartz, "Godspell" boasts a string of well-loved songs, led by the international hit, "Day By Day." As the cast performs "Prepare Ye The Way Of The Lord," "Learn Your Lessons Well," "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.

Drawing from various theatrical traditions, such as clowning, pantomime, charades, acrobatics and vaudeville, "Godspell" is a groundbreaking and unique reflection on the life of Jesus, with a message of kindness, tolerance and love.


And the show details:
The Dobyns-Bennett Performing Arts' Department presents Godspell January 20th and 21st at 7:00 p.m. and January 23rd at 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. Adults $8.00 and Students $5.00. Tickets may be purchased at the door.
We are going to take our youth group up on Friday. Here is a blast from the past:
