Centennial’s spring musical Godspell opens tonight at 7:00 p.m., and students and the Centennial community have a lot to be excited for. The story features a series of parables, primarily from the Gospel of Matthew. While the musical is biblical in nature, Centennial is bringing an interesting twist by setting the story in a non-religious, Mad-Max-esque, post-apocalyptic world.

The musical consists of 17 non-biblical characters and Judas, played by Joe Scott. At its heart, Godspell is about a community of disparate people coming together to promote values like compassion, generosity, peace, and love. The Centennial theater department chose Godspell to highlight these ideals in a society that has deviated away from the joy in identifying with one another under a common humanity.

When asked what students have to look forward to in Centennial’s reimagining of Godspell, Marianne Lamarche, the president of Centennial’s theater troupe, said “The set includes an authentic broken-down car, professional guitarists playing in the pit, unconventional costumes, and an impressive variety of voices.”

The show utilizes a blend of songs, ranging from vaudeville to pop which vibrantly showcases student talent as well as the unique elements employed in the musical.

The show will be at Centennial on February 21-23 with all shows beginning at 7 p.m. Tickets can be purchased here.
