Far from a traditional Sunday school class, this award-winning off-Broadway musical, Godspell , dives into the life of Jesus Christ by putting parables from the Gospel of Mark to song and dance, with 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’s life dances across the stage. Dissolving hauntingly into the Last Supper and the Crucifixion, Jesus’s messages of kindness, tolerance, and love come vibrantly to life. Friday, July 17 through July 19. $12 . 8pm, Friday & Saturday, 2pm Sunday.
