Godspell to be Performed in UC's Kohn Theatre


Theatre Technical Director "Moe" Conn puts the finishing touches on the set design for Godspell.

Williamsburg, Kentucky - University of the Cumberlands invites you to celebrate the good news of Jesus' teachings in a non-traditional manner. Godspell, the rock-n-roll Broadway show written by Director John Michael Tebalak, will be presented on stage in the UC Kohn Theatre at 7:30 each evening November 4, 5, 10, and 12 and at a 2:00 matinee on November 6.

With music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz, the musical production will feature UC junior Aaron Leftwich as Jesus. The supporting roles of familiar characters Judas, Peter and Thomas will be played by Jason Ewing, Andrew Morrison and Matt Sebastian, respectively. The 15 member cast promises a high energy performance that is guaranteed to make the audience tap their toes.

"We have a great group of student actors who will be making the incredible set come alive through music with a message," says Theatre Director Malissa White. The play, based on the gospel according to Matthew, was first produced in 1971 and is known for the international hit song "Day by Day."

Admission is $10, and tickets are available through the Kohn Box Office at 606-539-4535 or at
