Tonight, I got to get an early viewing of ESM’s Spring Musical, Godspell.  And it was absolutely delightful.  I have no idea, being a fan of great musical’s and well, Jesus, how I missed this one.  But seeing it for the first time tonight was an absolute joy.  And if I’m being honest, I think we all could use a little joy these days.  And hope too.  And both of those are certainly found on the stage of this amazing musical.

There were so many talented students that performed in Godspell.  We are an incredibly blessed district when it comes to teens that are gifted in the arts.

For those of you who are like me before tonight, and know nothing of Godspell, basically it’s a musical all about the parables of Jesus.

Mix in fun and colorful clothing and joyful and catchy songs and you basically get two hours that will fill your heart and put a smile on your face.

I’ll be honest.  The second act got a little more serious, but was so beautiful and incredibly well done.

After seeing the show tonight and getting so much out of it, I wanted to do all that I could to encourage you to go and experience it for yourself.  Knowing the hard work and heart that these students have put into their production, you will not be disappointed with the turnout.

There are three showings this weekend at Eastport South Manor Jr. Sr. High School: Friday and Saturday at 7:00pm and Sunday at 1:00pm.  Tickets are $12 for adults and $7 for students and seniors.  Concessions are available and there is also a Chinese Auction, so remember to bring extra money to help continue to support the Arts.  I hope you enjoy the show as much as I did and a huge congratulations to the many adults and students who made this incredible production happen!
