About this project

The Brown Paper Box Co. is proud to bring Stephen Schwartz and John Tebelak's GODSPELL to Chicago from September 20th - October 7th at Collaboraction Studio 300 in the Flat Iron Arts Building in Wicker Park.

ABOUT THE SHOW

Based on the Gospel According to Matthew, GODSPELL uses improvisation and contemporary themes to illustrate a message of kindness, community, and hope that still resonates today. But don't expect the usual collection of juggling clowns, face-painting flower children, and Superman T-shirts in our production - director M. William Panek and musical director Katie Colby are approaching the show with fresh eyes to create a one-of-a-kind modern interpretation of Stephen Schwartz's classic musical. With a cast of talented actor-musicians providing the instrumental accompaniment, our production will bring GODSPELL to Chicago like it's never been seen or heard before!

WHY CONTRIBUTE? 

GODSPELL will be our company's fourth full-scale production and our second musical, and we're so excited to bring it to life. As a new-ish theatre company, the production costs that accompany a new project can be daunting, and every dollar counts. Your donation will directly fund the theatre rental, production royalties, lighting and set design, cast and crew stipends, and publicity for our show.
