Dear Arts Patrons,

Welcome to this 2023–24 performing arts season production. The quality programming you are about to enjoy, and in which the university community takes so much pride, would be impossible without our friends, benefactors, and audience members. We are very pleased to have you join us.

This season is an expanded and eclectic mix of music, drama, music theatre, and stand-up comedy performed by outstanding artists ranging from nationally known acts to Viterbo students. The carefully crafted schedule reflects our dedication to upholding the legacy of the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration and their goal of sharing the wonder of the arts with everyone in the region.

To all Viterbo arts patrons, benefactors, sponsors, volunteers, artists, and students, thank you very much for your continued support.

Enjoy the show!

“Pace e Bene”
Peace and all good

Conservatory Note
Rick Walters headshot

Welcome to the Viterbo University Conservatory for the Performing Arts. We’re so glad you’ve joined in this shared experience of live theatre and music. There’s nothing else quite like it.

This season promises a tapestry of emotions, stories, and melodies, from the enchanting glamour of 42nd Street to the quirky brilliance of Bat Boy: The Musical, and the soul-stirring magic of Godspell.

We’re pleased to bring you new works from some of the most current voices in American theatre. In She Kills Monsters, Obie-award-winner Qui Nguyen offers up a genre-bending “Dungeons and Dragons” romp that can make you laugh even when you’re not supposed to. Tar Beach by Tammy Ryan drops us into 1977 on a New York City rooftop where an overstressed electrical grid leads to a city-wide blackout and the loss of innocence.

Feel the warmth of the holidays with the music of A Viterbo Christmas: The Holly and The Ivy, blending timeless carols and modern classics to launch the season. And in February, mark your calendars for the jazz-inspired romantic short opera, Later That Same Evening.

Thank you for joining us on this artistic journey as we explore new worlds, challenge perspectives, and create memories that last long after the final curtain.

Director's Note
Erin Jerozal headshot

This production is set up as a modern pop concert headlined by a girl who saw hope and beauty in the parables and wanted to heal the world.

This version, this Jesus, is an exploration of community in a very modern world. After a summer (and Super Bowl) of Taylor Swift, Barbie, Britney, and Beyonce, I felt inspired to explore: Who gathers a community in 2024 for singing and healing and laughter and dancing and friendship bracelets? Who is both worshiped and condemned for doing so?

This isn’t the story of Jesus as you may know it to be. This isn’t a production of Godspell as you may know it to be. In addition to using the 2012 Broadway revival version of the show, the character of “Jesus” in this production of Godspell is being played by a female actor. This casting is not meant to represent history, as that has never been the goal of Godspell. The authors (and the script) encourage productions to update references and casting to help highlight the power of the parables to create community in a fractured world.

So, lean into the event—dance, laugh, cheer, sing, turn on your bracelets when the time is right, and check out @thepreparetour on Instagram at intermission!

–Erin Jerozal

Dramaturgical Note
Beth Anderson headshot

Taking on the role of Biblical dramaturg in this production of Godspell is such a blessing and honestly an answered prayer. It combines my two biggest passions: faith and theatre. I’ve learned so much more about the Bible and it’s been a wonderful exercise of stepping out in boldness to proclaim the Gospel among my peers and friends. My process included notating the scripture that the libretto references, as well as using Bible commentary websites such as Bibleref.com. My process also included praying for wisdom to communicate the themes and concepts to the cast in a way that contextualizes it for them and is honoring to God. I hope no matter what your faith journey has been up to this point, that this show inspires you to catch a glimpse of the unwavering love of God for each and every individual viewer.

–Beth Anderson
