Press release from Parkway Playhouse:

Godspell is a musical that will begin showing at Parkway Playhouse on July 28 and run until August 11. Directed by Dwight Chiles, Parkway Playhouse’s production features Allen Law, Briar Boggs, Maximillian Koger, Hunter Taylor, Zacary Landolt, Martine Rose, Candice Dickinson, Christine Caldemeyer, Sam Lebrocq, and Heather Bronson. Performances are on Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30pm and Sundays at 3pm through August 11th.

A small group of people help Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a wide variety of games, storytelling techniques and a hefty dose of comic timing. An eclectic blend of songs, ranging in style from pop to vaudeville, is employed as the story of Jesus’ life dances across the stage. Dissolving hauntingly into the Last Supper and the Crucifixion, Jesus’ messages of kindness, tolerance and love come vibrantly to life.

Following the performance on opening night, July 28th, a complementary Opening Night Reception for the cast and audience will be held. And on Sundays, July 29th and August 5th, the cast will sit for post show discussions. Audience members can ask questions about everything from costumes to scenic design, acting and their individual roles in the production.

Tickets range from $13 for children to $24 for adults. All performances are at the historic Parkway Playhouse theatre, located at 202 Green Mountain Drive in Burnsville, NC. Tickets can be purchased by visiting the Parkway Playhouse Box Office (open 1-5pm Thursdays through Saturdays), calling 828-682-4285, or by visiting Parkway Playhouse’s 2018 Mainstage Season is sponsored by WKYK/WTOE and Switzerland Inn and Chalet Restaurant. The production of Godspell is sponsored by ProPatLLC.
