Godspell, August 24, 25, 26

My church, St. Georges Episcopal Church in Glenn Dale, MD is going to be putting on a production of the musical Godspell on August 24 at 8 PM, August 25 at 3 PM, and August 26 at 2 PM.

Tickets to each show are $10, there will also be a "Sweet and Savory" reception Friday Night from 6-8PM for an additional $6, $10 if you would like to have wine at the reception. There is a champagne brunch on Sunday from 12:30 - 2 PM, again, $6 for the brunch, $10 for brunch
with champagne.

St. Georges Episcopal Church is located where Greenbelt Road and Lanham Severn Road meet (MD 193 and MD 564), the street address is 7010 Glenn Dale Road. You can call them at 301-262-3285 to reserve tickets. I also have a few tickets that people can directly purchase, so drop me an E-mail if you'd like to get them that way.

For those of you who are not familiar with the show (I wasn't until the director asked about participating). Godspell is a telling of the Gospel of Matthew and focuses on the lessons and parables of Jesus Christ, with a fun twist on the presentation. Yeah, okay, it sounds like it's some clone of Jesus Christ Superstar, but they're not. I think that Jesus Christ Superstar represents the Catholic point of view on Jesus Christ, which is very focused on his eventual death and the lessons he teaches are put on the backburner. As for Godspell, the whole show is going through his teachings with the common stories we all hear about up until the end.

I hope those who read this in the DC and Baltimore area will come, it should be a fun show.
