Jesus Christ Superstar
November 12, 2019 - November 16, 2019
What’s the buzz? Middlesbrough Youth Theatre are excited to take you on a journey through the eyes of Judas Iscariot. Jesus Christ Superstar was the first musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice to be produced for the professional stage, and has wowed audiences for 40 years!
The rock opera is set against the backdrop of an extraordinary and universally-known series of events.
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.”
Another not to be missed performance by our multi award winning Youth Theatre.
