Come sing about LOVE!

Archbishop Carroll Theatre Society presents:  Godspell, a musical written by Steven Shwartz ( Wicked, Pippin ) and primarily follows the Gospel of Matthew. We are shown the parables and teachings of Jesus Christ ( Alex Brown ), his love and compassion for community and his acceptance of all men and women through immense empathy.

This fall production has focused heavily on building community. Each song in the first act will be regarded as an organic building of community. There are four possible lead soloists for these songs, and the actors themselves will not know who is leading until the moment their name is called. Our actors are preparing for a truly ensemble piece, and what's more exciting is that each of the four performances will be utterly unique in its creation.

Godspell  runs Nov. 29, 30 and December 1, at 7:00 p.m., and December 2, at 2:00 p.m. Single tickets are $15 at the door, and packs of tickets are available online and through the Student Affairs Office in Room. 219 beginning Monday, Nov 19. Four packs of tickets are $55; packs of six are $75. To purchase presale ticket packs - please visit Rm. 219 or click HERE . Students of Archbishop Carroll are free of charge with a valid student ID.

Godspell  at Archbishop Carroll will truly be unlike anything you've ever seen in high school theatre. Come experience the community. Come experience the passion. Come sing about love.
