Borrowed Babies

By Jennifer Blackmer

Directed by Doug Brown

Assistant Director: Shayne Maggard

As Judy London nears the end of her career as a Professor of Home Economics, an encounter with one of her former “practice babies” leads her to question her life’s journey and the sacrifices she’s made along the way. Loosely based on Ball State’s Department of Family and Consumer Sciences former operation of “practice houses,” BORROWED BABIES explores the ever-evolving role of women and mothers in American society over the last sixty years.

Book by John Michael Tebelak

Music & Lyrics by Stephen Schwartz

Assistant Director: Ragan Keefer

Boasting a score with chart topping songs by Grammy and Academy Award winner, Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin, Children of Eden), and a book by a visionary playwright John-Michael Tebelak, Godspell took the world by storm after it opened off-Broadway in 1971. The Gospel according to Matthew is brought vibrantly to life in this energetic musical comedy. An eclectic blend of songs, ranging in style from pop to vaudeville, delivers Jesus' messages of kindness, tolerance and love. Godspell is a sensation that continues to touch audiences, and Theater, Dance and Music at High Point University will deliver a production that asks members of the audience to join the company onstage from time to time.

This immensely successful rock opera broke new ground in its premiere, and this celebration of joy and love continues to inspire innovation as it explores one of humanity's greatest events.
