GODSPELL starring Chesney Hawkes

Brentwood Centre, Brentwood, CM15 9NN
Sat 29th June 2019 - Sun 30th June 2019


Starring Chesney Hawkes

The circus is coming to town with the West End and Broadway hit musical GODSPELL.   

Join us for a brand new, circus-themed revival of the hit 1970s rock musical that kick-started David Essex's career.

This immersive production stars the one and only Chesney Hawkes as Jesus Christ and The X Factor's Sam Callahan as the 'Ringmaster'telling the story of the crucifixion and resurrection along with a cast of over100 as circus folk. Featuring rock 'n' roll, pop, R & B, ragtime, rap and much more, with hit songs including Prepare Ye, Day by Day and Beautiful City.

An event for the whole family, with an hour of pre-show entertainment including jugglers, magicians and a spectacular curtain-raiser from Little Stars Circus and Harlequin Gymnastics Club.

In April 2018, The Brentwood Centre produced their first ever in-house show, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. With over 100 on stage and many more behind the scenes, this production brought the community together and sold out two performances. Many in the choir, as well as the show's Producer, talked of the benefits to their mental health. We quickly decided that we must do it all over again, except perhaps this time, it could be even bigger. We believe in the community which is why our cast has been created from a wide range of backgrounds. 

Special arrangements

The Brentwood Centre is aiming to be the most accessible sports and leisure facility in the country and we will be providing seating for those with any special need. Please book the un-numbered seats on either side of the stage and in due course, one of the team will be in touch to discuss how we can make your visit as comfortable as possible.

The show will be 'in the round' so everyone will get a great view and the facility has free parking, with fully accessible disabled spaces.

The production will be produced by Mark Reed on behalf of Brentwood Leisure Trading Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Brentwood Leisure Trust.
