Jesus Christ Superstar
November 14, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm$10.00
Jesus Christ Superstar — music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Tim Rice. Directed by Randy Reyes, Theater Department Artist in Residence.
Jesus Christ Superstar is a 1970 rock opera. The story is loosely based on the Gospels’ accounts of the last week of Jesus’s life, beginning with the preparation for the arrival of Jesus and his disciples in Jerusalem and ending with the crucifixion. It depicts political and interpersonal struggles between Judas Iscariot and Jesus that are not present in the Bible. This production will embrace the idea of rock idolatry and grounding the world in a rock concert setting complete with back up dancers and an awesome rock band!
