Wetherby Musical Theatre Group is taking to a different kind of stage for its next production.

The group, whose past recent productions have included Little Shop of Horrors, is to perform rock musical Godspell at St James Church in the town from April 25-27.

Spokesman Fred Lyn said: “It is the 30th anniversary since the adult group last performed Godspell.

“The church is allowing us to be more creative and flexible within the church so that we can move away the traditional stage.

“It allows us to present something that little bit different.”

Godspell first opened on Broadway in 1971 and is a popular choice for professional and amateur groups through the years.

“There are an abundance of well known songs for everyone to enjoy and the atmospheric story telling is enhanced due to it being performed in St James Church,” added Fred.

Wetherby Musical Theatre Group, which has about 30 performing and 30 other members, is also supporting Martin House Hospice with this production, featuring David Lee as Jesus and Colin Aspinall as Judas.

Tickets are available from Wetherby Library, online at www.musicaltheatregroup.org.uk or at the door on show nights.
