Presenting ‘Godspell’
The Paris Henry County Arts Council is presenting the Bethel University Renaissance Theatre Production of “Godspell” Oct. 1-2 at the Krider Performing Arts Center in Paris at 7 p.m.  Tickets for this event are $10 and can be purchased from the Arts Council office,  located at 100 North Caldwell St. inside City Hall, the Bethel University Bookstore, Tennessee Valley Community Church and from any Arts Council board member.
 “‘Godspell’ is a fun and exciting story about the life of Jesus and the impact He had on those who followed Him. This series of parables, based on the Gospel of Matthew, will challenge and inspire audiences of all ages,” a spokesman said. “Told through story and song, the life of Christ is illustrated through the company of players or ‘disciples.’  Creative storytelling, choreography, mime and many forms of theatrical expression make this telling of the passion of the Christ one not to be missed. You will be challenged and inspired as you see many of the important events laid out before you, including the last supper, the crucifixion and the resurrection.”
Groups of 15 or more receive a special group rate and can purchase their tickets for $8 each. To purchase group tickets or to receive information about the Renaissance Theatre program, call the Renaissance office at (731) 352-6414.
 This project is funded under an agreement with the Tennessee Arts Commission and sponsored by the Tennessee Valley Community Church. For more information about the Paris Henry County Arts Council or this production, visit or contact the Arts Council office at (731) 642- 3955.
