The musical uses major episodes in the Bible — including the baptism of Jesus, the Last Supper, his arrest and crucifixion — to explore important ideas like compassion, love, forgiveness and sacrifice for the greater good.  

“There is a wonderful symmetry in this production,” Olsen said. “These students are working together as a team to present a musical, which at its core reminds us how our individual actions ‘day by day’ help us to build a beautiful community and world.

“We have chosen to bring the timeless musical ‘Godspell’ to today’s world,” he continued. “This production is set inside a present day classroom with Jesus being the teacher. As with the original ‘Godspell’ production, the audience is part of the cast in our production as well. Together we will celebrate the teachings and life of Jesus.”

The Big Horn High School choir will present the production March 28 at 7:30 p.m. in the Big Horn auditorium. Tickets are free, but donations will be accepted.

The Sheridan College Music Ensemble of Audio Technology (MEAT) was founded in 2011 to provide an opportunity for ensemble playing to our music tech students who don’t play a band or orchestra instrument. Inspired by the Boulder Laptop Orchestra at Colorado University and the Stanford Laptop Orchestra, the group makes use of handheld devices, laptops, synthesizersand other electronic instruments to create music.
