GODSPELL - the musical in Liverpool

Liverpool NS
Friday, August 16th and
Saturday, August 17th
8:00 pm
Tickets $15


The Nicholoadians Theatrical Society (TNTS), a not-for-profit theatre group, is presenting Godspell, a high-energy rock musical based on the Gospel of Matthew, and is full of songs, laughter, and stories.

Bobby Curtola first hit the pop charts in 1962, with hits including Indian Giver, Three Rows Over, Fortune Teller, and Hitchhiker. While his success on the Canadian charts has grown, Curtola remains selfless and humble, as proven by his tireless charity work for muscular dystrophy and service clubs across Canada.
