*Costume(s) will be worn by actor, but owned by Stage Right Ministry.


Godspell was the first major musical theatre offering from three-time Grammy and Academy Award winner, Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin, Children of Eden), and it took the world by storm. Led by the international hit, "Day by Day," Godspell features a parade of beloved songs, including "Prepare Ye the Way of the Lord," "Learn Your Lessons Well," "All for the Best," "All Good Gifts," "Turn Back, O Man" and "By My Side."

A small group of people help Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a wide variety of games, storytelling techniques and hefty doses of comic timing. An eclectic blend of songs, ranging in style from pop to vaudeville, is employed as the story of Jesus' life dances across the stage. Dissolving hauntingly into the Last Supper and the Crucifixion, Jesus' messages of kindness, tolerance and love come vibrantly to life.

About TNT Convention:

The TNT Youth Conference is a four to six-day event, generally at the beginning to middle of June, celebrating young people’s involvement in the performing arts. The location changes, based on the availability of a local theatre host. Individual students and adults, members of Youth Companies with their adult directors and chaperones – all are welcome to attend.


The official kickoff is on Thursday afternoon (rehearsals for performing companies begin on Tuesday or Wednesday)  with performances in the afternoon and evening. On Friday and Saturday mornings, students rotate among a series of workshops designed specifically for them. In the afternoons and evenings, there are more performances. On Sunday morning, there is an Awards event, recognizing all of the performing companies and announcing the All Star Cast and other awards. Registration for the Youth Conference is open to anyone (you do not have to be a company member to register) and includes all workshops, social events, performances and the Sunday Awards Event.

Workshops: Young people from all across Texas who are interested in the performing arts – particularly theatre – come together to attend workshops ranging from Improvisation to Hip Hop, Stage Makeup to Audition Techniques. The students are broken up into similar age groups, then rotate among 6 workshops, each of which lasts about 1 hour. Workshop are taught by professional theatre artists.

Performances: Companies apply to perform at the Youth Conference, bringing their own show to be performed for the other conferees and the general public, with tickets available for purchase at the box office before each show. Each of the shows receives feedback from a qualified Commentator, adding to the educational value of the showcases. Previous productions have included Into the Woods, Disney’s The Lion King, The Seussification of Romeo and Juliet. . . it runs the gamut from published plays and musicals to original works authored by the company members.
