Description:

Let Your Light So Shine!

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.

Characters:

Jesus

Charistmatic. High energy, charming, funny, gentle but with strength.

John the Baptist/Judas

Has attributes of both Biblical figures: He is both Jesus' lieutenant and most ardent disciple and the doubter who begins to question and rebel. Like Jesus, he is also charismatic, but in more of an overt revolutionary way. He is the most "serious" and intellectual of the group.

Nick

Very high energy. Impish and playful.

Telly

Not the brightest in the bunch, he is a little slow on the uptake. But there is a great sweetness and innocense about him. Sings "All Good Gifts."

George

The comedian, the class clown. The guy who can do a hundred voices and imitations.

Anna Maria

A bit of a tomboy, but basically open and sweet. Perhaps the youngest of the group. She is the first of the group to commit to following Jesus in the song "Day by Day."

Lindsay

The confident one, the show-off. The first one to vonunteer, sometimes she jumps in before she really understands what's going on.

Uzo

The shy one. Sometimes a little slow to get things, but when she does, she commits all the way. Has a warmth to her.

Morgan

Sassy and slightly cynical.

Celisse

The female equivalent of the class clown. Goofy and a cut-up.

Ensemble

Those who learn to follow Jesus and hear and understand his teachings. Participants throughout the show.
