GODSPELL in Chicago Kickstarter

Hi, readers!

My theatre company, The Brown Paper Box Co., is currently in the midst of a Kickstarter campaign to help fund our upcoming production of GODSPELL. I know a good deal of you know the show, are familiar with the music, or have been in it in the past, so you know how powerful and fun it is. We're revamping in a brand new way and would love it if you could support us. Thanks for anything you can give and PLEASE feel free to share our info on your blogs, Twitter feeds, etc.

Love and thanks,

The Brown Paper Box Co. is proud to bring Stephen Schwartz and John Tebelak's GODSPELL to Chicago from September 20th - October 7th at Collaboraction Studio 300 in the Flat Iron Arts Building in Wicker Park.

Based on the Gospel According to Matthew, GODSPELL uses improvisation and contemporary themes to illustrate a message of kindness, community, and hope that still resonates today. But don't expect the usual collection of juggling clowns, face-painting flower children, and Superman T-shirts in our production - director M. William Panek and musical director Katie Colby are approaching the show with fresh eyes to create a one-of-a-kind modern interpretation of Stephen Schwartz's classic musical. With a cast of talented actor-musicians providing the instrumental accompaniment, our production will bring GODSPELL to Chicago like it's never been seen or heard before!


GODSPELL will be our company's fourth full-scale production and our second musical, and we're so excited to bring it to life. As a new-ish theatre company, the production costs that accompany a new project can be daunting, and every dollar counts. Your donation will directly fund the theatre rental, production royalties, lighting and set design, cast and crew stipends, and publicity for our show.

Thank you for being a part of this project!
