A small group of people help Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a wide variety of games, storytelling 
techniques and hefty doses of comic timing. An eclectic blend of songs, ranging in style from pop to vaudeville, is 
employed as the story of Jesus' life dances across the stage. Dissolving hauntingly into the Last Supper and the 
Crucifixion, Jesus' messages of kindness, tolerance and love come vibrantly to life. 
Led by the international hit, "Day by Day," Godspell features a parade of beloved songs, including "Prepare Ye 
the Way of the Lord," "Learn Your Lessons Well," "All for the Best," "All Good Gifts," and "Turn Back, O Man".
