Godspell-Banner

Our next full production will be Godspell, which we will be performing from April 4th to 7th 2018 at the Oxford Playhouse.

Rehearsals are now well underway. Jesus and his disciples have been cast (see below), and the entire company are on a costume hunt for the dystopian world in which this production is set.

Jesus and the disciples

The story of Godspell tells of a broken community looking for purpose. Based on the stories and parables in the Gospel of Matthew, it shows the group discover another way of living, something that eventually provides light despite the bleakest of moments.

With music by Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Children of Eden, Pippin), the melodies (Day by Day, Turn Back O Man, All For The Best, Prepare ye the Way of the Lord) are timeless and this immensely popular rock opera thoroughly deserved its Tony nomination when it first hit Broadway in 1977.

This re-imagined production fizzes with energy, laughter, song, dance and joy.

Tickets are already on sale and are available online here or from the Oxford Playhouse box office.
