Godspell s set to take the town by storm

~ 20 July 1984 ~

As the curtain came down on the Abyerstwyth Arts Centre's new summer show the sounds of a delighted audience clamouring for more echoed around the building.

Director Richard Cheshire's brilliantly energetic production of the rock musical “Godspell” is set to take Aberystwyth by storm. Who could fail to warm to the versatile and exuberant cast, who obviously enjoyed every moment on stage and took the audience with them through every action packed moment.

One of the more startling aspects of the production of Godspell, at least visually, is the physical appearance of Jesus and his followers, who are dressed in bright clown clothes and painted faces.

It would be wrong to single out any individual member of the cast. As a unit they worked so well, with their superb range of voices providing a vocal harmony of unique quality, complimented by a chorus line of local children. A modern light-hearted interpretation, with Jesus playing the part of a magician and clown, Godspell has an air for freshness and vibrancy ensuring that the musical product of the 70s is not dated.

The show is smack up to date. The cast dressed for “street credibility” in brightly coloured clothes, gives the show a visual 80s punch, while the “rock beat” music, under the direction of Rob Mitchell, swings from unfettered ebullience to moving sadness.

“Godspell” is for everyone. Everyone looks for something different in a show – Godspell has it all.
