Students at Coe-Brown Northwood Academy will perform Godspell on Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7 p.m. at the school.

Based on the gospel of Matthew, Godspell is a series of parables with contemporary music and comedy that shares lessons of kindness, tolerance and community.

Jesus and his followers in the show share parables of the Good Samaritan, Lazarus and the Sower of Seeds in addition to telling of the Beatitudes, the Last Supper and the Crucifixion.

The show spans genres with rock-n-roll and gospel and vaudeville and pop.

The ensemble cast includes Braelin Ash, Shayla Ashley, Brian Downer, Mackenzie Flanders, Nina Laramee, Cooper Leduke, Paige Marston, Alex Mercedes, Connor Nowak, Alyssa Reiff, Rylee Rogers, Allison Rose, Aiden Schutte, Julia Sommer and Darin Sweet, with additional performances by Mirah Johnston and Lily Marston.

A defining quality of the show is that the majority of the cast is on stage for the entire production.

The show is directed by Elizabeth Lent, choreography by Kolby Hume and music direction by David Deardorff.

Tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for students and seniors, and are available at cbnanh.booktix.com. For more information, call 942-5531, ext. 237, or email elent@coebrown.org.
