Sterling United Methodist Players to Perform “Godspell”

The Sterling United Methodist Church Players will present the musical “Godspell” on March 1, 2, and 3! This performance is a production of the 2012 revised version of the original 1971 musical composed by Stephen Schwartz.  Godspell follows the story of Jesus Christ as he forms a community of lovable disciples, who teach lessons through songs and skits under His direction. It is a high energy, hilarious performance that is sure to be enjoyed by all ages.

The performance is co-directed by Sharon Rosenfeld and Andy Vest featuring a cast of local youth ranging from 6th to 12th grade. Music direction is by Willis Rosenfeld and light production by Matthew Pepper. We would love to see you and your family at the show!
