Jesus Christ Superstar
Whatâ€™s the buzz? The Greendale Community Theatre (GCT) is kicking off 2017 with a production of Biblical proportion, Jesus Christ Superstar. With music and lyrics by Academy Award winners Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, this show has become a global phenomenon, mesmerizing audiences for more than 40 years.
GCT is performing the full orchestration with one of their largest pit orchestras to date. And the show's vision, brilliantly conceived by Director Leda Hoffmann, is sure to please the die-hard Superstar fans while adding a new, modern look to this musical classic.
Jesus Christ Superstar takes place in Greendale High Schoolâ€™s Reiman Family Arts Wing, 6801 Southway, Greendale. Performance dates are January 12, 13, 14 and 19, 20, 21. All performances are at 7:30 p.m.
Jesus Christ Superstar is a fast-paced rock opera that dives into the untold story of the last week of Jesusâ€™s life. Loosely based on the Gospelâ€™s accounts, it presents a unique narrative on a well-known series of events - this time through the eyes of Judas Iscariot. Attendees will enjoy acclaimed songs like Everythingâ€™s Alright, Whatâ€™s the Buzz, and I Donâ€™t Know How to Love Him.
Tickets are available online at greendaletheatre.org or by calling the Box Office at (414) 817-7600. Tickets are also available at the door at GCTâ€™s Box Office which opens at 6:00 p.m. on performance days. Ticket prices are $15 for adults and $12 for students and seniors.
