New Light Theatre presents Godspell, at E.O. Bull Center Mainstage, West Chester, August 11-20th
TICKETS ON SALE SOON!
Godspell 2012 is a contemporary updated arrangement of powerhouse musical numbers and exuberant storytelling from a group of friends, invited by Jesus, who have come together to “sing about love.” Through dynamic games and playful takes on parables, a close-knit community is built on the foundational messages of kindness, tolerance and generosity, empowering every person to be the light in the world, and to build a “beautiful city” of humanity, “brick by brick, heart by heart.”
New Light Theatre is dedicated to improving the human condition by partnering each production with thematically connected charitable causes, while also placing a special emphasis on providing opportunities for student and emerging theatre artists to work in a professional setting. New Light Theatre is committed to bringing light to the darkness of the world, to raising awareness and support for organizations that illuminate, and to deepening our empathy and connection with one another through meaningful artistic work. In accordance with this mission, Godspell will partner with REACH Riverside, a member of The WRK Group, a nonprofit working to transform Wilmington’s Riverside Neighborhood into a vibrant, healthy place to live and thrive by focusing on three pillars of revitalization: redevelopment, education, and community health. REACH Riverside is building high quality, mixed income housing, creating an education pipeline to enhance opportunities for successful futures, and includes a comprehensive community health program, including play spaces, mental health support, financial literacy and youth engagement. Under the WRK Group, REACH works with Kingswood Community Center, providing food assistance and an array of social services, and The Warehouse, an oasis for teen arts, education and health.
