Jesus Christ Superstar – St Austell
July 26 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
BODMIN MUSICAL THEATRE COMPANY are proud to present their 2019 production “JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR”.
A rock opera based on the last week of Jesus’ life. The first musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice to be produced for the professional stage, Jesus Christ Superstar has wowed audiences for over 40 years. A timeless work, the rock opera is set against the backdrop of an extraordinary and universally-known series of events but seen, unusually, through the eyes of Judas Iscariot. Loosely based on the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, Superstar follows the last week of Jesus Christ’s life. The story, told entirely through song, explores the personal relationships and struggles between Jesus, Judas, Mary Magdalene, his disciples, his followers and the Roman Empire. The iconic 1970s rock score contains such well-known numbers as “Superstar,” “I Don’t Know How to Love Him” and “Gethsemane.” A true global phenomenon, Superstar continues to touch new generations of audiences and performers. Tickets on sale now from Mad Hatter’s Tea Rooms, 77 Fore Street, Bodmin and Cornish Riviera Box Office – £10 adults, £8.50 Under 16s.
