The Queen’s Theatre, Hornchurch, is thrilled to present a heavenly new production of the divine smash hit musical – Godspell, from 16 May – 7 June.

This almighty celebration of friendship, loyalty and love is bursting with boundless energy and boasts a large super-talented ten-strong cast – all members of cut to the chase…, the Queen’s professional resident ensemble of actor-musicians.

From John and Judas to prophets and parables, Director Matt Devitt’s stylish urban-inspired production retells the timeless story of Jesus – as told in the Gospels – in a gloriously colourful way!

With music and new lyrics by Stephen Schwartz – the Grammy and Academy Award-winning composer of West End hit Wicked – Godspell’s wonderfully uplifting soundtrack is jam-packed with soul-stirring pop, folk and rock hits such as Light of the World, Prepare Ye, Day by Day and many more – all played live on stage by the brilliant cut to the chase… company.

Since first opening off-Broadway in 1971, Godspell has been performed in thousands of shows on Broadway and in the West End, becoming one of the most popular and enduring musicals in modern history. It would be a sin to miss it!

This production features Sam Kordbacheh, fresh from playing the title role in the Queen’s The Great Gatsby. Gateway’s Ros Connors spoke with Sam during rehearsals.
