COLUMBIA, Ky. --
Members of the The Lindsey Wilson Players will present the play Godspell, a rock musical about the gospel of St. Matthew, April 25-28 at V.P. Henry Auditorium on Lindsey Wilson College's A.P. White Campus.

The show begins at 7:30 p.m. CT April 25-28 with a 2 p.m. CT matinee performance on April 28. V.P. Henry Auditorium is located at 210 Lindsey Wilson Street.

The LWC production will be directed by Assistant Professor of Theatre Robert Brock, with musical direction by Associate Professor of Music Gerald L. Chafin.

Brock said the musical -- which was written by Stephen Schwartz and first produced in 1971 -- is a fun modern-day version of the gospels with a powerful and touching ending.

"It's a joyous celebration of the gospel," Brock said, "Godspell is not only a play with catchy music, this musical holds a message of joy in life."

Godspell is currently being revived on Broadway, and the Lindsey Wilson cast members recently visited the Broadway cast and participated in a workshop at the Circle in the Square Theatre in New York.

LWC cast member Hannah Peck of Columbia said that the upcoming production will be a memorable one for audience members.

"Godspell is going to be a fun, yet moving performance that is sure to be one people will remember," Peck said.
