Jesus Christ Superstar

Tuesday 19th November 2019 to Saturday 23rd November 2019

Hailey Budd as director, David Barton as Choreographer and Rosamond Savournin as Musical Director.

Imagine a crowded rock concert. People are cheering, there are lights flashing, music blaring, and there, in the middle of the stage, is Jesus. Yep. That Jesus. The New Testament, the Messiah. Jesus Christ is not generally the central figure we expect in a rock show, but that's exactly what makes the musical Jesus Christ Superstar so entertaining.
With music by Andrew Lloyd Webber, and lyrics by Tim Rice, this show is technically classified as a rock opera, in that rock n' roll music is used to tell a theatrical story, the show is completely sung through. The story is told primarily by Judas Iscariot, the disciple who ultimately betrays Jesus. Special attention is played to the relationship between Judas Iscariot and Jesus, as well as Jesus’ relationship with Mary Magdalene.
