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.
On February 3rd, students Sarah Moshofsky and Ashlyn Carlisle competed against 500+ other theatre students in the Oregon Thespians Northwest Regionals competition. Both girls did well in the categories of Technical Theatre: Costume Design and Solo Musical Theatre.
Congratulations girls on a job well done!
