Society to Stage "Jesus Christ Superstar" in 2019

Monday 28th May 2018 at 1:10 PM

As announced at the Society's recent A.G.M., the show choice for 2019 has been confirmed as Jesus Christ Superstar. The announcement was greeted with great excitement at the A.G.M.

Jesus Christ Superstar is a 1970 rock opera with music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Tim Rice. The musical started as a rock opera concept album before its Broadway debut in 1971. The story is loosely based on the Gospels' accounts of the last week of Jesus' life.

The Society previously staged Jesus Christ Superstar in 2001 in River Island Nite Club, in what was a very memorable show week for all involved, and are very excited to be bringing this modern classic in The Hub in April 2019.
