Godspell
Gallagher Student Center Theater

Godspell, a production of the Xavier Department of Music and Theater, is based on the Gospel of St. Matthew.  A small group of people help Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a wide variety of games, storytelling techniques, and a hefty dose 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.  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".

General admission ticket prices:
Faculty/Staff/Student/Senior - $12,   Adults - $17

 Comedy Night with Amy Anderson*
Cintas Center Banquet Rooms

Don't let the name fool you...  Amy would describe herself as "a funny American girl who happened to be born in Korea and adopted by Swedish parents in suburban Minnesota".  Amy is a one-of-a-kind on the comedy scene and her act will remind you to never judge a book by its cover. 

Amy balances her comedy career and being mother of her daughter, Aubrey, the little girl who plays "Lily" on ABC's Modern Family.  Since moving to L.A., Amy has established herself as one of the hottest up-and-coming comedians in the country.  She was selected for both NBC's and CBS' Multicultural Comedy Showcases and created the first ever Asian American stand up showcase Chop-SHTICK, at the Hollywood Improv.  You can see Amy on Comedy Central, SITV, Mun2, VH1, GSN and The Tom Joyner Show and on several national television commercials.
