Every week on Friday and Saturday until September 22, 2018

The Potomac Playmakers announce the first show of the Playmakers’ 2018-2019 Season, the classic Stephen Schwartz musical, Godspell! Led by the international hit, “Day by Day,” Godspell features a parade of beloved songs, including “Prepare Ye the Way of the Lord,” “Learn Your Lessons Well,” “All for the Best,” “All Good Gifts,” “Turn Back, O Man” and “By My Side.” 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. Boasting a score with chart topping songs and a book by a visionary playwright (John-Michael Tebelak), Godspell is a sensation that continues to touch audiences!
Produced with kind permission from Music Theatre International, Godspell is directed by Valorie Phillips with music direction by Ruthy Stenger Japzon and choreography by Allison Banzhoff, and stars Renee Emanuel, Katie Fenley, Stephanie Heward, Anna Lynch, Dustin McQuaid, Lexi Oliver, Andrew Shifler, Nic Sigman, Colt Smith, and Devin Taylor. Godspell will be performed September 14-16, 2018 and September 21-23, 2018 at The Women’s Club, located at 31 S. Prospect Street, Hagerstown, Maryland 21740. Show times for the performances are 8:00 pm for the Friday and Saturday shows, while the Sunday afternoon matinees begin at 3:00 pm. Tickets will be $15 general admission, and are available online at www.potomacplaymakers.org or at the door.
