NPCC Music and Theater Departments to Present ‘Godspell’

godspellThe North Platte Community College Theater and Music Departments will present the musical “Godspell” by Stephen Swartz and John Michael Tebelak from Dec. 4-7 at the McDonald-Belton Theater.

The production, directed by NPCC theater director Ritch Galvan and NPCC music instructor Elizabeth Peters, will begin at 8 p.m. Dec. 4-6 with a matinee set for 2 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 7.

Based on the Gospel According to St. Matthew and featuring a sparkling score by Stephen Schwartz, 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,” “All For The Best,” “All Good Gifts,” “Turn Back, O Man” and “By My Side,” the parables of Jesus Christ come humanly and hearteningly to life.

“We are very excited to bring musical theatre back to NPCC after a 15 year hiatus,” Galvan said, adding, “Godspell is going to be the first of many musical we will bring to audience of North Platte. This musical production is fun for all ages and shows off not just the talents of NPCC students, but also several community members who’ve lent their talents as well.”

Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for seniors and can be purchased at the door.
