Stephen Swartz’s musical, GODSPELL opens at St. Francis Theater March 5, 2010

St. Francis Theater presents Godspell, a delightful, musical interpretation of one the most influential writings in western civilization, the Gospel According to Saint Matthew.  With inspirational, Grammy Award winning music by Stephen Schwartz (Wicked & Pippin), Godspell is a high-energy, contemporary re-telling of the parables and the life of Jesus that is both comedic and inspiring.  A huge Broadway and international success, Godspell remains an enduring musical favorite and includes the songs Day By Day, Beautiful City and All For the Best.   Although referencing stories from the Christian tradition, audiences throughout the world have embraced Godspell’s timeless, non-denominational messages of tolerance, kindness and hope. 


St. Frances Theater Ensemble is one of Tucson’s most established companies and is dedicated to bringing inclusive, high quality, and meaningful theatre experiences to the community.  Godspell is directed by Marren Sanders and features the talents of Nick Gallardo as Jesus and Kit Runge in the role of Judus.  Godspell opens Friday March 5th and runs through March 21st.  St. Francis Theater is located on the NW Corner of River and Swan.  $20 for premium seating or $15 general admission ($12 for seniors or students).  Tickets available at brownpapertickets.com or 647-4921.
