Seating: General Admission

Godspell is an interactive musical that is fun for all ages featuring such classics as "Day by Day" and "Bless the Lord." This musical follows Jesus and his disciples as they form a community.  Godspell creatively uses various theatrical forms to present parables from the Book of Matthew and the life of Jesus. 

The School of Theatre and Dance provides students with pre-professional training opportunities as directors, playwrights, designers, actors, technicians and managers. In the Studio Theatre at the Forbes Center, student-produced works comprise the Experimental Theatre Series.  In contrast to the faculty and guest-directed shows in the Forbes Center's larger Mainstage Theatre, the Studio Theatre offers students a flexible, state-of-the-art theatre "laboratory" in which to develop their own work.  In these student directed, designed, and acted performances, students explore the possibilities of staging and, occasionally, non-traditional approaches and scripts.  Audiences are invited to come and experience the new and often thought-provoking work of tomorrow's theatre professionals. 

Godspell is presented by special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI, 421 West 54th Street, New York, NY 10019. Phone: 212-541-4684. Fax: 212-397-4684. www.MTIShows.com

Godspell is standing room only. Patrons who require seating will be accommodated. No large bags or items will be allowed in the theatre.
