What is Godspell about?  Is Godspell a “Christian” show?  

Godspell is a musical and like all musicals, it requires a certain suspension of disbelief.  Secondly, CYT’s production of Godspell will be nothing like the 1973 motion picture.  If your perception of Godspell is based on the film, then read on!  

The stage version of Godspell (which means “Good Message”) is a display of parables accompanied by high-energy, pop-rock songs. The content of the script comes largely from the Gospel of Matthew.  Interestingly, the show’s structure is like a liturgy with readings and lessons alternating with songs and psalms.  

The purpose of Godspell is to use a modern setting and familiar situations to help the audience (and the cast) connect with the material.  Godspell is not a passion play. It is not historically accurate.  Although the parables come directly out of the Bible, it is not a literal or complete representation of the gospel.  It is fictional.  Like all musicals, it requires a certain suspension of disbelief.  

In addition to a variety of games, storytelling techniques and a hefty dose of comedic timing, Godspell presents an eclectic blend of songs, ranging in style from pop to vaudeville, including  "Day by Day," "Prepare Ye the Way of the Lord," "Learn Your Lessons Well," "All for the Best," "All Good Gifts,"  and "By My Side."
