Thunder Bay Theatre kicks off opening day of “Godspell” this weekend

ALPENA, Mich — Thunder Bay Theater is putting on a performance that’s right on time to get you in the Christmas spirit. Thunder Bay has teamed up with Alpena High School’s theatre troop to put on the Tony–nominated musical, Godspell.

Education coordinator at the theatre, Adrian Alexander, says the play highlights the gospel of Matthew, and is a story of character and integrity.

“We’re setting it in modern day New York and we’re getting all the different characters that belong to different walks of life and different belief systems and just kind of coming together and showing how no matter what walk of life or belief system, how we can still form a community and make a better day.”

In the tale of friendship, loyalty, and love, a small group of disciples help Jesus tell parables through song, dance and humor. The play opens this Friday, November 29 at 7:30 p.m. and will run every weekend through December 15.
