Redhouse Arts Center closes their 2023/2024 season with the enlightening, dynamic, and popular musical Godspell. The production will run from May 10th to May 19th.

Often comedic and at times haunting, Godspell is a religious experience, a demonstration of joy, and a celebration of the family of man. The production tunes in to this family, relying on the combined passion of a troupe of actors to bring it to life. Visiting director Robert Ross Parker says: “Godspell is a unique, musical celebration of community.  I am so excited to collaborate with a dream team of visionary theatre makers who are this charged up about bringing Stephen Schwartz' incredible collection of songs to life for Syracuse.”

With music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz, the Broadway legend behind Wicked, and based on the Gospel of St. Matthew, Godspell is a modern imagining of the last days of Jesus. An eclectic blend of songs, ranging in style from pop to vaudeville, is employed as the story of Jesus' life dances across the stage.

The cast of Godspell features both visiting and local artists. Lincoln Skoien makes his Redhouse debut as Jesus, joined by Artistic Director Temar Underwood* as John/Judas. The parables and songs featured by the rest of the cast include artists Vito Longo (We Beseech Thee), Ryan Albinus (Light of the World), Tyler Ianuzi (All Good Gifts), Ceara Windhausen (Turn Back, O Man), Janna Kozloski (Bless The Lord), Evelyn Oliver (By My Side), Alexis Martin (Learn Your Lessons Well), and Bianca Hallett, who is also making her Redhouse debut (Day By Day). 

The production team for Godspell includes Robert Ross Parker (Director), Colin Keating (Music Director), Chelsea Colton (Choreographer), Caitlin Friedberg (Production Stage Manager), Terry Martin (Scenic Designer), Elissa Martin (Costume Designer), Shane Patterson (Lighting Designer), Anthony Vadala (Sound Designer), Josh Reid (Production Manager/Lead Electrician), Michael Ranlet (Technical Director/Properties Coordinator), Amanda Moore (Wardrobe Supervisor/Dresser), Craig Costello (Assistant Technical Director), and Bree Lincks (Assistant Stage Manager). 

This performance is rated G and has a two hour running time, with one fifteen minute intermission.
