In a world where we are constantly bombarded with bad news and “fake news”, what can we consider good news and what would it even look like? What if it’s not seen as good news for everyone? What news can we even believe anymore, and more importantly, who can we trust? This Easter, prepare ye the way for a timeless tale of friendship, loyalty, and love, as the story of Jesus and community comes vibrantly and musically to life on stage for the whole family to experience. The Ottawa production of Godspell is a never-before-seen, freshly interpreted, contemporary adaptation (developed by 9th Hour’s artists) relevant to our society in the here and now, and featuring real news ripped straight from the headlines. In Godspell (the very word meaning “good news” or “good story”), a rag tag group of today’s unlikely citizens join together to explore the different parables and teachings of Jesus using a wide variety of songs, games, and storytelling techniques. You won’t want to miss this limited opportunity to enjoy the classic high energy musical that’s entertained audiences around the world for almost 5 decades, with music by award winning STEPHEN SCHWARTZ (“Wicked” composer).
The ensemble cast of Godspell will be raising money after every performance for the Ottawa Innercity Ministries art program for street involved youth.
