"Godspell" at BAC

The Academy of Children’s Theatre will present the popular Christian
musical, Godspell, April 19-21 and 26-28, at the East Bank Theatre in
Bossier City. Performances on April 19, 20, 27 at 7:00 p.m., 26 at 7:30 p.m.
and 21 and 28 at 2:00 p.m. Conceived by John Tebelak with music by
Stephen Schwartz, Godspell is one of the biggest Broadway successes of all
time. Based on the Gospel According to St. Matthew, and featuring a
powerful score by Stephen Schwartz, Godspell boasts a string of well loved
songs including “Day by Day”, “Prepare Ye the Way of The Lord”, “All
Good Gifts”, and “All for the Best.” Through this upbeat and hilarious
musical, the parables of Jesus Christ come humanly and touchingly to life.
Drawing from various theatrical traditions such as clowning, pantomime,
vaudeville, and dance, Godspell is a groundbreaking and unique reflection
on the life of Jesus, with a message of kindness, tolerance, and love.
Updated in 2012, the parables feature appearances by such current
celebrities as Lindsay Lohan, Honey Boo Boo, Judge Judy, and Sweet
Brown.
The production is directed by Cynthia Hawkins Whitaker with
choreography by Lauren Ross Wooley and musical direction by Daniel Ley.
It stars newcomer Zac Rowe as Jesus with Kolby Ledbetter as Judas.
Tickets are $15.00 each, and reservations can be made
 by calling 318-741-8310.
