In this hit musical, a small group of people help Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a wide variety of games, storytelling techniques and a hefty dose of comic timing. An eclectic blend of songs, ranging in style from pop to vaudeville, is employed as the story of Jesus' life is shared on stage. Dissolving hauntingly into the Last Supper and the Crucifixion, Jesus' messages of kindness and love come vibrantly to life. Godspell was the first major musical theatre offering from three-time Grammy and Academy Award winner, Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, The Prince of Egypt, The Hunchback of Notre Dame); and it took the world by storm. Led by the international hit, "Day by Day," Godspell features a parade of beloved songs, including "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."
Godspell will be performed by CharacterWorks' 2021 Masters Camp students.
This production will be performed outdoors at KingsWay Community Church under the current CDC and VA health and safety protocols.

Congratulations to the cast of Godspell! We had a fantastic time being entertained and moved by you through all of your auditions and callbacks, and cannot wait for you to share your talents and this incredible story with an audience.
As you will see below, the ten featured ensemble roles in Godspell have each been double-cast, with ten performing in shows on Friday, July 2nd and the other ten performing in shows on Saturday, July 3rd. The rest of the ensemble will be performing in all four performances! With this in mind, all campers should plan to be present at all four performances - those not performing their featured ensemble roles may still be singing along on or offstage, or helping their fellow cast members backstage.
More featured moments, singers, and roles will be determined as we get closer to opening night. Godspell is a perfect show for Masters Camp because everyone in the cast will be very actively involved onstage throughout the entire musical.
Be on the lookout for more information about camp in the coming weeks. It is hard to believe that Masters Camp starts in less than a month! We are looking forward to seeing everyone together for the first time as we begin our journey through the gospel of Matthew.
