Roxbury Performing Arts Presents Godspell this Spring

RHS Performing Arts presents Godspell

ROXBURY, NJ (February 12, 2021) – Roxbury High School is proud to present its 2021 Spring Musical production of Godspell, conceived by John-Michael Tebelak with music by Stephen Schwartz. This immensely successful rock opera was first produced on Broadway in 1971, where it broke new ground in its stage treatment of the historical Jesus Christ. Based on the Gospel according to St Matthew, it deals with the last days of Jesus, and includes dramatized versions of several well-known parables. And yet it is something more - a spiritual experience, a demonstration of joy, and a celebration of the family of man. The cast are ordinary people, improvising scenery and costumes, and using many well-known theatrical devices, pantomime, vaudeville and varied musical styles to interpret one of humanity's greatest stories. 

Due to the ongoing health crisis, the Roxbury High School Performing Arts Department are only able to offer live performances to close family and friends of cast members.  However, the production will be available for public viewing through an online streaming event scheduled for March 26, 27, and 28th. These are scheduled streams and must be watched on the date and time specified. You can order your pass code to watch the online stream by clicking here or by scanning the QR code on the attached flyer. Passcodes will be usable on one digital device only.

We hope you are able to join us for this theatrical event!
