Duration: All Day

Edgewood High School, Madison, will present their 2019 spring musical, Godspell (2012 revised version) at First United Methodist Church, 203 Wisconsin Ave., Madison, on March 15-17. The retelling of the original 1971 sensation is filled with updated contemporary references, new ensemble driven musical arrangements, and the purposeful expansion of the cast for a larger show with multiple leads and consistent presence of the ensemble. Godspell takes the stories of the Gospel of Matthew and mixes them with contemporary music and references to provide a timeless message on the importance of community. In an age where "being connected" is often referred to, but not often lived out, the play explores friendship, engaging, and collaborating with diverse people in complex lives, loyalty, and love. The play provides many opportunities for students to learn and perform in the areas of contemporary music, dance, and exploration of character through improvisational storytelling. Dates and times of the play are: Friday, March 15, at 7 p.m.; Saturday, March 16, at 2 and 7 p.m.; and Sunday, March 17, at 2 p.m. Tickets are $12 for adults, $10 for students 18 and under, and for seniors over 65. There is a small service fee to purchase tickets. Purchase tickets at https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/4073540
