Classic Musical "Godspell" Coming Soon

The cast of Pacific Stagework's production
of Stephen Schwatrz' "Godspell"
Pacific Stageworks proudly presents "Godspell," a rock musical based loosely on the Gospels.

The cast consists of actors from both the Portland and Vancouver area who create a joyous and poignant spiritual experience for the audience and actors alike, regardless of individual religious beliefs.

Running October 11-13 and 18-20 at 7:30 p.m. with 2 p.m. matinees on October 12, 13, 19 and 20, "Godspell" will be performed at the Battle Ground Community United Methodist Church (10300 NE 199th St. Battle Ground, WA 98604). Tickets are $15 online and $17 at the door and can be purchased online at www.pacificstageworks.com, by phone (360-213-5174), or at the door.

Book by John-Michael Tebelak and playful and poignant score by Stephen Schwartz (Wicked), "Godspell" includes such songs as "God Save the People," "All Good Gifts" and the international hit “Day By Day.” 

 Cast includes: Peter Liptak, Laurie Campbell-Leslie, Patti Westby, Dorinda Toner, Kathleen Jung, Zak Campbell, Rebecca Duncan, Hannah Toner and Nick Hulscher. Director Tony Bump focuses his concept on how Jesus’ message can release our potential and allow us to become our best selves. 

“Too many times we try to fit ourselves into other’s expectations,” Tony says. “Each of us is unique with different talents, personalities, and things to accomplish. The gospel can help us find out who we truly are and lead us to a more meaningful and abundant life.”

Conveyed through song, dance, and humor, the biblical parables and the crucifixion story are central elements of the musical. "Godspell" is a groundbreaking and unique reflection on the life of Jesus, with a message of kindness, tolerance and love.
