Drama Department to perform “Godspell,” Feb. 15-17

Posted on:

Westside Christian High School’s Drama Department will perform a Portlandia version of the 1970s Broadway Musical, Godspell, at Alpenrose Dairy Opera House on February 15-17.

Based on the Book of Matthew, the musical uses both word and song to tell of Biblical truths about the importance and beauty of community through the teachings of Jesus Christ.

With smash hits like “Day by Day”, “By Your Side”, and “Learn Your Lessons Well”, this 2012 revival takes the original production and includes modern day twists, references, and fresh arrangements that will leave you wanting to sing along and dance to these timeless classics.

Dates and showtimes are:

  • Friday, Feb. 15, 7 p.m.
  • Saturday, Feb. 16, 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.
  • Sunday, Feb. 17, 2 p.m.

Godspell was originally written by American playwright John-Michael Tabelak with music composed by Stephen Schwartz, with its first off-Broadway performance in 1971. Numerous tours and shows have been produced since.

Alpenrose ice cream and other refreshments are available during intermission.  

Alpenrose Dairy Opera House is located at 6149 SW Shattuck Rd, Portland.

Admission is $12  for adults and $10 for seniors and students. Thespian Society members with I.D. cards receive $1 off admission. Content is age appropriate for middle school children and up.

The Ash Girl

Dates and show times are: Friday, April 27 at 7 pm; Saturday, April 28 at 2 pm and 7 pm; and Sunday, April 29 at 2 pm.

Radium Girls

Posted on:

Come see the dramatic, historical production of Radium Girls, November 3-5 at Alpenrose Dairy Opera House, presented by students of Westside Christian High School.

Inspired by a true story, the play depicts the lives of working class women in the 1920s who, by painting the dials of “glow-in-the-dark” wristwatches, begin to fall mysteriously and fatally ill due to the radioactive paint they handled. This intriguing story prompts viewers to consider both past and present labor and worker safety issues,  scientific discovery, and consumerism in America.

Dates and showtimes are: Friday, Nov. 3, 7 pm; Saturday, Nov. 4, 2 pm and 7 pm; and Sunday, Nov. 5, 2 pm.

Admission is $6 for students and seniors, $8 for adults.  Tickets can be purchased at the door  at Alpenrose Dairy Opera House, 6149 SW Shattuck Rd, Portland.

Radium Girls was written by D. W. Gregory and first published in 2003.
