Saturday May 25, 2019 7:00 PM

Godspell is a show that can easily be thought of as Jesus and his 9 zany friends re-enact the parables and the passion. However, our version is set in a post-apocalyptic industrial park, with a mock wall of Berlin in the back that lays out the colorful groundwork for us. The ensemble members begin the show in business casual attire, surrounded by a ladder the ladder of success, which company members attempt to climb (unsuccessfully). Judas enters and warns the company members to prepare, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. The curtain opens to reveal the wall and our company changes out of the business suits and into post-apocalyptic clothes that are sepia toned (things you might find today, but dirty and torn). This is meant to be a nod to the original production that used a similar style of costume, but rather than re-hash what has been done before, we are updating it. Hair and makeup will reflect this same aesthetic, and create the initiation facial symbols of the ensemble with a palate of face paint drawn on by Jesus. The graffiti on the wall will have UV paint that will create Jesus's cross during the passion, as well as the city to reflect the lyrics during the finale. Garbage and props will be scattered across the stage floor to be used during the parables. Three garbage cans are needed to create the Pharisees during the discussion in the second act.
