One of the most celebrated musicals of all time, GODSPELL, comes to the stage of PoiemArtistry Theatre Company of Raleigh. This unique and memorable production has played to sold-out crowds all over the world.
A small band of people searching for purpose and meaning to life, help Jesus Christ tell different parables found in the book of Matthew – utilizing a wide variety of storytelling techniques and heart-warming vignettes. An eclectic blend of songs, ranging in style from pop to vaudeville (“Day By Day,” and “Prepare Ye”), is employed as the story of Jesus’ life is retold on stage. Dissolving poignantly into the Last Supper and Christ’s Passion, Jesus’ messages of kindness, love, and salvation come vibrantly to life through an exciting and beautiful portrayal of the Gospel (The word GODSPELL is an old English rendition of the word Gospel – or “good news”).
“One of the unique aspects of this musical is the proximity of the cast to the audience,” states PoiemArtistry Director, Michael Green. “The audience will get a get a front row seat to the expressions and emotions of the characters rarely seen in stage productions as Godspell will be performed in an arena-theater configuration.”
