The Woodland Opera House, in conjunction with Kevin and Lorie Haarberg and Roger and Sue Kohlmeir, presents “Godspell” from Jan. 11 to Feb. 3.
The musical plays at 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays, with an additional 2 p.m. matinee on Saturday, Jan. 26. The Opera House is at 340 Second St. in downtown Woodland.
Based on the Gospel according to Matthew and featuring a score by Stephen Schwartz (“Wicked” and“Pippin”), “Godspell” boasts a string of well-loved songs, led by the international hit, “Day By Day.”
As the cast performs “Prepare Ye the Way of the Lord,” “Learn Your Lessons Well,” “All for the Best,” “All Good Gifts,” “Turn Back,” “O Man” and “By My Side,” the parables of Jesus come humanly and warmly to life. “Godspell’ is a groundbreaking and unusual reflection on the life of Jesus, with a message of kindness, tolerance and love.
The cast includes Erik Catalan as Jesus and Matt Taloff as John the Baptist/Judas and features Eric Alley, Quentin Carbajal, Alex Cesena, Emily Delk, Emily O’Flaherty, Eimi Taormina, Ayesha Thomas and Hannah Wallace. The show is directed and choreographed by Jason Hammond with music direction by James Glica-Hernandez.
