Middlebury College Musical Players to Perform "Godspell

The Middlebury College Musical Players will perform Stephen Schwartz's dynamic musical, "Godspell," on March 12-15 in the College's McCullough Student Center on Old Chapel Road, off Route 30. "Godspell" is the third annual production presented by the Musical Players, a student organization.

Based on the Gospel of St. Matthew, Schwartz's vibrant musical portrays the life and teachings of Jesus Christ. The cast performs a variety of parables with modern twists, singing and dancing their way through many well known songs: "Save the People," "Day by Day," and "By My Side."

Performances of "Godspell" will take place at 8 p.m. on Thursday, March 12 through Saturday, March 14, and at 2 p.m. on Sunday, March 15.

Tickets are $5 for adults, and $3 for children, students, and senior citizens. Tickets will be on sale at the door before each performance, at the Student Activities Office in the McCullough Student Center on Old Chapel Road (off Route 30) from March 2-8, and in Proctor Hall on Hepburn Road (off College Street/Route 125) from March 9-13.
