Looking for a renewed faith in community?

The passionate music of Stephen Schwartz’s Godspell - searching for a renewed faith in the power of community and celebrating the possibilities of love - rings ever so gloriously now again in our country’s present time of discord and vitriol.

One doesn’t need to be a Christian to be transformed by a leader like Jesus, playfully guiding disciples through some well-known parables about humanity’s brightest potential before preparing those disciples for a crucifixion that asks the new community to pick up the mantle after the leader is gone.

Find joy by reaching out to those around us

Lake Harriet Players, now in their 16th season, and with an expanded cast that includes children and youth to elder adults, shakes the stage’s rafters this March with songs like Prepare Ye, Save the People, Bless the Lord, and Light of the World. And with the gentler melodies of Day by Day, All Good Gifts, Beautiful City, and By My Side, we are reminded of how simply joy can be found by reaching out to those around us. Even after more than forty years since its Broadway debut, the show still offers laughter, tears, and surprises. This production promises all three. With all the great music, a rockin’ pit band, lots of color and light, and a whole lotta love, we offer you the closest thing to a revival meeting, just inside the Lake Harriet United Methodist Church instead of a tent. Come see, come hear for yourself.
