Godspell – Tent Theatre

Prepare ye for Godspell, a modern-day retelling of the New Testament parables. With a Tony-nominated score of songs ranging in style from pop to vaudeville, including the hit song “Day by Day,” composer Stephen Schwartz (Wicked) brings to vibrant life the timeless messages of kindness, tolerance, and love.
