Join ISU Theatre in a celebration of community and love when it presents the musical “Godspell,” opening Friday, April 5 at 7:30 p.m. in Fisher Theater in Ames. Using a wide variety of storytelling techniques and a hefty dose of comic timing, a diverse group of 21st century college students encounter Jesus, who leads them through stories inspired by parables in the Bible’s book of Matthew.

The musical’s setting takes place in modern-day Fisher Theater, as the performers journey from a discordant group of individuals into a community.  The music features inspiring and entertaining songs ranging from pop and rock to vaudeville.

Timothy Davis stood on the deck and looked out over New York City. As he gazed down at a little bodega and basketball court, he noticed the scene seemed familiar. He played on that basketball court as a struggling artist many years ago. Back then he only knew he wanted to be an actor in New York City. Now, as he stood on the balcony during a break from filming "Billions," Davis revelled in the fact his dream had come true.
