‘Godspell’

Bethlehem Catholic HS’s Theatre Department spring musical, “Godspell” by Stephen Schwartz and directed by Debbie Acampora opened April 13 and continues April 20 and 21. The 70s inspired ‘hippie’ costumes and the basic stage constructed of boxes that the actors stood or sat on throughout the play all made sense as you watched the musical, which had several stage-wide dance numbers and gatherings. The staging is a spectacle with movement, at times both on the floor and in the aisles. There were over 50 in the Becahi cast. “Godspell” opened off Broadway on May 17, 1971. Musical numbers include “We Beseech Thee,” “Day By Day” and “Learn Your Lessons Well.”
