The 1970 rock opera “Jesus Christ Superstar,” with music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Tim Rice, is coming to the newly renovated STAR Repertory Theatre in Escondido, Nov. 2-11.
Seen through the eyes of Judas Iscariot, the show is set against the backdrop of Jesus and his last week. Loosely based on the Gospels, the musical highlights the interpersonal struggles between his disciples, followers and the Roman Empire.
“As San Diego County’s fastest growing community theatre over the past six years, it was our dream to take the next step and present professional productions featuring accomplished pros with national experience,” said director Scott Kolod. “With this cast, in our brand new theatre space on East Valley Parkway in the heart of Escondido, STAR Repertory Theatre has taken a big step forward for our audience and theatre family. ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ fills the space with great music and passion.”
