“Godspell” comes to The Amp’s Backyard Stage on June 28 & 29.
On Monday, June 28, and Tuesday, June 29, Apex Theatre Studio will present the beloved Off-Broadway classic “Godspell” at the Backyard Stage at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre for limited-capacity performances with distanced seating. The Backyard Stage the St. Augustine Amphitheatre is presented by Intuition Ale Works.
An instant hit when it was produced Off-Broadway in 1971, “Godspell” offers a variety of musical styles and theatrical formats to make the Gospel of St. Matthew accessible to today's audiences. Its much-loved score includes the hits "Day by Day" and "Prepare Ye the Way."
The production features young artists from five area high schools including Douglas Anderson School of the Arts, Atlantic Coast High School, and Stanton College Preparatory School. Jake Moorehead, a rising junior at the prestigious Point Park University (Musical Theatre program), will play the role of Jesus.
