Godspell" The Musical
Presented by the community of The Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia 

The community of The Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia (LTSP) will present Stephen Schwartz’s acclaimed musical Godspell in performance on December 7 and 8, 2012, 7 pm on the seminary campus.
Based on the gospel of Matthew, the musical tells the story of Jesus and his disciples with an upbeat and modern twist to the 2,000 year old story. Having made its Broadway debut in 1976, the show made a revival Broadway appearance in 2011. With songs such as “Prepare Ye” and “Light of the World,” the show continues to engage audiences across the country in local performances today.
LTSP second-year students Josiah Armstrong and Mark Johnson have headed the project as Artistic and Musical Directors. The cast and pit are comprised of students, staff, and faculty of the seminary.
Both performances are open to the public, and tickets are available at the door prior to each 7 pm performance. The cost of admission is $10.
The performances will be held in the Schaeffer-Ashmead Chapel at LTSP, located at 7301 Germantown Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19119. Parking is available in The Brossman Center lot, located behind the chapel. Please see the seminary’s website for additional directions and parking information (
Proceeds of the performances will fund mission supplies on the annual service trip of the seminary to John’s Island, South Carolina. This trip is led by Rev. Dr. Robert Robinson.
