Known for its intricate musical numbers, Godspell features a variety of musical styles, including rock ‘n roll, pop, R&B, ragtime, rap and more. The eccentrically dressed cast often gathers around Jesus as he tells different stories and sings about his teachings and the importance of love. The story is made up of scenes drawn from parables from The Gospel According to Matthew. Set in modern times, Jesus Christ recruits a group of followers and teaches them various lessons through song and dance. Toward the end of the second act, the show begins to follow a more linear narrative as Jesus is betrayed by Judas and eventually crucified. Although primarily geared toward an adult audience, Godspell can teach many powerful lessons and values to children, and they may enjoy the energetic, silly nature of the show.
