Godspell

by Stephen Schwartz and John-Michael Tebelak

Black background with multi-colored text reading "Godspell"

Godspell follows a small group of ordinary people as they are chosen to become disciples of Jesus Christ. The nine disciples help Jesus tell different parables by using a wide variety of games, storytelling techniques and a hefty dose of comic timing! Possible theatrical elements include: puppetry, clowning, improvisation, instrumental music, being silly, onomatopeia, etc. The show’s structure allows the incorporation of whatever gifts and talents actors have to offer. 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 and love come vibrantly to life. There is an abundance of opportunity for actors to explore light-hearted comedy, philosophical dialogue, and serious drama as the story unfolds.

We will be casting in the December cycle. We are committed to an imagination of this show that includes all identities. Anyone can be cast in any of these roles! If you have any concerns or questions about casting, please feel free to reach out to joe.lee@yale.edu or olivia.oconnor@yale.edu
