A Rock Opera Classic with a Twist

Main characters - Ethan Goodacre (Jesus), Mica Torre (Mary) and Daniel McPherson (Judas)

If you thought you knew Jesus Christ Superstar the musical, think again!

Revolution Theatre Productions is staging a new take on the rock opera classic at the Albury Entertainment Centre from 12-15 September.

Director Christine Duff, Musical Director Paul Brosche, and Choreographer Cazz Kardol, together with the cast, have put together an inspiring new take on this Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice production.

Back row: Alex Gibbs as Pilate, Kittin Veltkamp as Annas and Colm Cox as Caiaphas. Front row: Ethan Goodacre as Jesus, Mica Torre as Mary and Dan McPherson as Judas.

“Most people know the story, but this time it comes from Judas’ perspective, and this time we have taken a modern, metaphorical approach, set it to a really rocking score for a totally different take on this Christian classic,” explained Director Christine Duff.

In this production, the last days of the life of Jesus Christ are brought sharply into focus when seen through the eyes of the Apostle Judas Iscariot.

Lloyd Webber’s 1973 epic chronicle of love, betrayal and politics, chronicles the familiar story of the last week of the life of Jesus Christ ending with his inevitable crucifixion.

The audience is confronted with a modern-day Judas who re-examines his version of events and the roles Mary, Pilate, Herod, the twelve apostles and others took in the lead up to the destruction of one man. In a stark re-imagined setting, this new version of Jesus Christ Superstar sets out to challenge and reward its audience who, alongside Judas, await the answer to – “I only wanna know”.

Revolution Theatre Productions Jesus Christ Superstar features a huge cast of talented singers and performers and is backed by a live orchestra and stunning effects.

Fifty per cent of the net profits from each production goes towards charitable gift giving work by Albury Wodonga Community Chest Incorporated. Past beneficiaries have included Belvoir Special School, Wewak Street School, Mercy Health, Betty’s Place and Albury Wodonga Cancer Foundation. The other fifty per cent is for support of future productions for fundraising.
