Fine Arts: Theater Productions
Minnesota West Community & Technical College will present the pop/rock musical GODSPELL March 20 through March 22. Written by 3-time Grammy and Academy Award winning composer Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin, and Children of Eden) and John-Michael Tebelek, GODSPELL is based on The Gospel According to St. Matthew and incorporates lyrics from hymns, psalms and other religious sources to recreate the circumstances of Jesus and his disciples in contemporary terms.
Led by the international hit, “Day by Day,” GODSPELL features such beloved songs as “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.” Dissolving hauntingly into the Last Supper and the Crucifixion, Jesus's messages of kindness, tolerance, and love come vibrantly to life.
Performances will take place in the Fine Arts Building on the Worthington Campus of Minnesota West Community & Technical College at 7:30 p.m. on March 20 and 21 and at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, March 22. Tickets will be available at the door a half-hour before each performance ($6 Adults/$4 Students/FREE for Minnesota West Students).
