When was the last time you attended a high school production of Godspell? Well now, through the magic of YouTube, you can attend one anytime you like. Enjoy…

Thanks to Slog tipper Hank.

I wonder if this is what it was like when Stravinsky debuted The Rite of Spring?

Isn't that Mindy Cohn of "The Facts of Life"?

Sweet Jesus, indeed! My ears are bleeding. I don't think one person was singing in tune. Oy.

I am just glad Nietsche did not live long enought to see this.
He would have rested his case and rightfully so.

As a former high school theatre queen, I try to be sympathetic to amatuers, but that was really awful. It might have had something to do with the quality of the recording equipment, but there was some real caterwauling and bad direction at the root of it.

I never cared much for Godspell anyway.

If you liked color-blind casting, you'll love tone-deaf casting.

If you REALLY want to see high-school theatre geeks geek out on a number from Godspell, complete with a drama queen that reminds me of myself back in the early 80's, check out this little gem. As a bonus, it was evidentially filmed entirely in a Wal-Mart parking lot (someplace I would never be caught dead in. I had standards, even then. I was strictly a Pamida boy)

add a ford logo to that and you have yourself another American Idol commercial from this season- only the singing is even better than this yrs' finalists. love it at :10 when the girl pulls down her shirt in an attempt to look less fat.

Dan, I hope your son grows up to be as talented and handsome as you. Meantime, may I suggest school theatre is for the personal development of the kids. Even fat ones. It isn't about achievement in musical theatre. Ready to post your son's school pagent?

God says to eat more yoodles ... and pringles. Once you pop, the power of christ compells you not to stop.
