The Teen Ensemble of Musical Theatre Workshops of Augusta will be presenting the 2012 revised version of the Stephen Schwartz musical, Godspell, on Saturday, February first.

Mickey Lubeck is the director of Musical Theatre Workshops of Augusta.

"This version of Godspell is a rockin' updated musical, filled with memorable songs, exciting choreography and lessons to be remembered."

The musical is being presented in the Greenbrier High School Auditorium.  Show times are at 2:00pm and 7:00pm. For ticket information call 706-231-1759.

Schawrtz wrote the music and lyrics for Godspell in 1971 and won several awards, including two Grammys. 

He offers these thoughts about Godspell productions:

"Every time Godspell is done, it is basically created anew, because it grows out of the improvisations of the cast and the directorial concept. The content of it didn't spring up anew 40 years ago. The content has been around for 2000 years, and the stories and lessons and philosophy have remained relevant for all that time.... Godspell, at its heart, is about the formation together over very basic and simple philosophical concepts, such as "Always treat others as you would have them treat you." That being said, Godspell is never intended to be preachy or to be a 'Sunday School lesson.' It's funny and joyous."
