Socially Distant Performance at Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park
COVINGTON, KY – The Carnegie is set to present the uplifting musical extravaganza that is GODSPELL … And it will be presented in an innovative format where audiences can experience the performance at a safe, social distance.
A Musical Based Upon The Gospel According to St. Matthew
Music and Additional Lyrics by Stephen Schwartz
Conceived by John-Michael Tebelak
Come sing about love! This uplifting musical, featuring songs from Stephen Schwartz (PIPPIN, WICKED), will be presented in an innovative format across Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park’s three-acre campus. Featuring physically distant staging and walk-through format, this will be like no production of GODSPELL you’ve experienced before!
Each performance features two start times, 4:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m., to allow for social distancing within walking audience groups. This format does require sustained walking and standing throughout the show. If you need a more accessible way to view the show, please call the box office to set up an art cart ticket, allowing you to slowly drive between scenes and sit for the duration of the show in one of Pyramid Hill’s custom golf carts.
- September 12 performance – Tour start times 4:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.
- September 13 performance – Tour start times 4:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.
“With the inherent unique visuals of Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park serving as the backdrop, this production of GODSPELL will be as creative, inventive, experimental and fun as anything The Carnegie has ever done” said Maggie Perrino, Theatre Director for The Carnegie.
