NRT Presents: Godspell

If you want to learn about the stories of the Bible and tap your foot at the same time, go see No Refund Theatre’s production of “Godspell,” a musical composed by Stephen Schwartz.

A modern twist on the parables of the Bible, Godspell entertains with songs and lyrics that follow traditional hymns you would hear in church. The show starts with members of the cast taking roles of different philosophers and sharing their beliefs through song. They then break out into different characters and help Jesus tell the parables through storytelling, dancing, and the perfect amount of comedy.

Christie Fisher, president of the Penn State Thespians and director of NRT’s production of “Godspell,” is experienced when it comes to the NRT. She handles everything gracefully and makes sure that everything runs smoothly behind the scenes.

“The director is the costume designer and helps with lighting and sound,” Fisher said. “It’s a lot more difficult being in charge of all the little things that other people are usually assigned to.”

Fisher chose the show “Godspell” because it impacted her life and love of theatre.

“The energy, the music, and the messages spoke to me and made my love of theatre grow exponentially,” she said. “You don’t even have to be a religious person to understand and appreciate them.”

Fisher shows the audience just how much this show means to her through all the hard work she’s put in to make this production happen. The cast parallels this and their energy and enthusiasm shines through.

NRT presents “Godspell” at 9 p.m. on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday in the HUB Flex Theatre. You can see the event’s Facebook page for more information.
