Archbishop Carroll Theater Society (ACTS)
Moderator: Mr. Serpentine
Archbishop Carroll Theatre Society presents: Godspell
Godspell is a musical written by Steven Shwartz (Wicked, Pippin) and primarily follows the Gospell 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 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.
