Easter Events

Holy Spirit Night at South City Theatre

Godspell – Holy Spirit Fundraiser, March 24th at 7:00 pm

Join us for Holy Spirit Night at South City Theatre! Tickets are $25/person with profits from sales going to Holy Spirit. Purchase tickets HERE or contact the office, 621-3418.

Godspell was the first major musical theatre offering from three-time Grammy and Academy Award winner, Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin, Children of Eden), and it took the world by storm. Led by the international hit, “Day by Day,” Godspell features a parade of beloved songs. A small group of people help Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a wide variety of games, storytelling techniques and hefty doses 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. Godspell is a sensation that continues to touch audiences.
