Join us for a special one-night professional performance of the musical Godspell as a benefit concert for St. Luke’s job development work with the Sudanese and Congolese refugee communities of San Diego.
Based on the Gospel according to Matthew, Godspell is the first musical theatre offering from composer Stephen Schwartz who went on to write such well-known hits as Wicked, Pippin, and Children of Eden. The show features a comedic troupe of eccentric players who team up with Jesus to teach his lessons in a new age through parables, games, and tomfoolery. Godspell also features the international hit, “Day by Day”, as well as an eclectic blend of songs ranging from pop to vaudeville, as Jesus’ life is played out onstage. Even after the haunting crucifixion, Jesus’ message of kindness, tolerance, and love lives vibrantly on. The show includes the full musical but is minimally staged because it takes place inside a cathedral.
Price: $75 (incl. $50 tax-deductible gift), $25 students/refugees
