The uplifting musical’s physically distant staging across Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park’s beautiful campus guarantees this will be like no production of GODSPELL you’ve experienced before! Each performance, featuring songs from Stephen Schwartz (PIPPIN, WICKED), has two start times to allow for social distancing within walking audience groups.

“In the arts, we’re natural innovators – especially in response to unanticipated challenges,” said Kim Best, Executive Director of The Carnegie. “COVID-19 represents a sea change for the industry, one in which partnerships are reinvigorated. Together, The Carnegie and Pyramid Hill are safely sharing the joy of the arts with the Greater Cincinnati region in a way we never would have imagined if not for these circumstances.”

“Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park is excited for this collaboration and the opportunity to bring live theatre to our outdoor venue,” says Sean FitzGibbons, Executive Director of Pyramid Hill.  “This will allow our patrons, new and returning, to experience the park in a new way.”

The socially distant production of GODSPELL presented by The Carnegie CDC, the volunteer consortium launched in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park represents the first performance partnership between the two arts organizations.

The Carnegie CDC acts as a creative engine and rapid response team to the current struggles of the arts and entertainment industry. It also provides a new community-based structure for performing arts programming, such as safe, socially distance live experiences, like GODSPELL, that follow public health recommendations to keep cast, crew and arts patrons safe.

The GODSPELL cast and production team is listed below.
