GODSPELL (2012 newly revised version)
Conceived and Originally Directed by JOHN-MICHAEL TEBELAK. MUSIC AND NEW LYRICS BY STEPHEN SCHWARTZ. Originally produced on the New York Stage by EDGAR LANSBURY / STUART DUNCAN / JOSEPH.
GODSPELL was the first major musical theatre offering from 3-time Grammy and Academy Award winner Stephen Schwartz (WICKED, POCAHANTAS, THE PRINCE OF EGYPT) and it took the world by storm. 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."
SYNOPSIS: Based on the Gospel According to St. Matthew, a small group of people help Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a wide variety of games, storytelling techniques, and hefty dose of comic timing.
Boasting a score with chart topping songs, a book by a visionary playwright (John-Michael Tebelak), and a feature film, GODSPELL is a sensation that continues to touch audiences and has become an audience favorite.

ABOUT MUSIC AND ART AT NEIGHBORHOOD CHURCH
MUSIC & ARTS AT NEIGHBORHOOD: The music and arts legacy at Neighborhood Church stretches back to the 1930's in Oakland, California, where the church established a reputation as a center of cutting edge contemporary dramatic and musical performances. When Neighborhood Church moved to Castro Valley in 1969 to break ground on a new facility overlooking Interstate 580/Route 238, the auditorium was designed and constructed with stage production in mind and features a hydraulic orchestra pit, an extensive backstage, a seven story fly gallery (for backdrops), and state-of-the-art sound and lighting systems. Broadway-style productions at Easter, Summer and Christmas are outreaches extended to the community in celebration of our Lord Jesus Christ, and which we hope you will enjoy.
