ESRT is traveling to NYC!
Eastern Shore Repertory Theatre received special permission from Music Theater International and Broadway lyricist and composer Stephen Schwartz to present GODSPELL, JR in Central Park at the historic and newly renovated Naumburg Bandshell. Celebrating 50 years of Godspell, this will be a free performance in New York City on October 14th at 1 pm.
The original Godspell was the first major musical theatre offering from three-time Grammy and Academy Award-winner, Stephen Schwartz, and it took the world by storm. Boasting a score with chart topping songs, Godspell JR. is a sensation that continues to touch audiences. A group of disciples 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, are employed as the story of Jesus' life dances across the stage. Dissolving hauntingly into the Last Supper and the Crucifixion, Jesus' messages of kindness, tolerance and love come vibrantly to life.
