NTID's performing arts program this weekend will produce Stephen Schwartz's Broadway hit, "Godspell," under the direction of Luane Davis-Haggerty, at Geva's Nextstage. NTID's unique presentation of this work includes both deaf and hearing actors, and will be presented in spoken English and American Sign Language. "Godspell" has long been a hit for its fantastical visual account and vivid enactment of the last days of Jesus as described in the Gospel of Matthew, all set updated to a modern New York City, and this special arrangement will mix classic musical performance, signing, and dancing for a distinct version of the show.
"Godspell" will take place at Geva Theatre Center (75 Woodbury Boulevard) on Friday, May 27, and Saturday, May 28, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $20 for adults, $15 for seniors, students, and children. gevatheatre.org for tickets.
