Jesus Christ Superstar


Summer Place Theatre
Naperville Central High School, 440 Aurora Ave 60567 Naperville United States
Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice collaborate on this 1970 rock opera portraying the final days of Jesus Christ. The musical began as a concept album and eventually blossomed into a movie starring Ted Neeley and Carl Anderson as Jesus and Judas. The story follows Judas, Jesus, and Mary Magdalene as the apostles prepare for Jesus’s entrance into Jerusalem. Judas is concerned that Jesus’s reputation as “King of the Jews” will get them all into trouble. This concern is echoed by the Jewish high priest Caiaphas, who fears Roman retaliation if the Jews revolt and follow Jesus. The controversial storytelling attempts to get into the heads of the famous Bible characters at this pivotal moment in Christian history, while also commenting on timeless political struggles. Memorable musical numbers from the show include “I Don't Know How to Love Him,” “Superstar,” and “Gethsemane.”

Performances are June 17-26
Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30pm
Sundays at 3:00pm
