Godspell Photo Storyboard Highlights

The Cast-- For the "Audience of One"

This is our Judas dancing at the foot of the Art Institute of Chicago steps

Jesus & Judas do Vaudeville--
such lighthearted fun is a stark contrast to Judas' later betrayal.

Blondechick 15 sings in one of many chorus numbers

Blondechick sings "Popular" from Wicked during the Broadway medley that tells the Good Samaritan parable. She portrays the Judge, who in this very "paraphrased" version walks on the other side because of the Samaritan's disdainful lack of popularity.

Sassy judge puts the downcast Samaritan in his place.

In the "On the Willows" lighting as the cast contemplates Jesus' coming sacrifice.

The Crucifixion Scene

Celebration and Resurrection near the end (Bantam 12 Front & Center)

Blondechick still in Vaudevillian mode with a few friends after rehearsal.

Bantam 12 in a chorus number--
always lots of arms and almost Busby Berkeley-like movement
designed by our wonderful director and choreographer

Bantam 9 very seriously receiving the Director's notes after rehearsal.

Fabulous photos, Jeanne. It looks so professional too! I was involved in Godspell back in the 70s at university, and it was an amazing time. I still love the music!
Have a great weekend!

B15 looks like she has really good stage presence. :)
Looks like a very FUN production!

Wow! what a brilliant experience for kids to get involved in! I've never hear of Godspell before but it seems like a such a positive way of reinforcing biblical learning in a fun up to date way...
Well done to all your chicks on their performances and you for your unfailing support and encouragement.
