Theatre Department Presents Masterful Retelling of Godspell


Highlands High School’s Theatre Department Presents Masterful Retelling of Godspell




Students from Highlands High School’s Theatre Department bring Godspell to the stage. Fresh. Fabulous. Fun. You’ve never seen a Godspell like this one. Set against the backdrop of a hip coffee shop, our multi-talented cast sings, dances and plays some instruments as they tell this high-energy, re-imagined story of loyalty, laughter and unconditional love. This masterful retelling of the original sensation is injected with contemporary references and dazzling new arrangements. Join the celebration!


A small group of people 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, is 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. 


Godspell was the first major musical theatre offering from three-time Grammy and Academy Award winner Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin, Children of Eden), and it took the world by storm. Led by the international hit "Day by Day", Godspell features a parade of beloved songs including "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."
