Tick­ets to go on sale for Je­sus Christ Su­per­star

Wicklow People (Arklow) - - NEWS -

AVONMORE Mu­si­cal So­ci­ety’s 39th pro­duc­tion, Je­sus Christ Su­per­star, will hit the stage in St. Mary’s Col­lege, Ark­low from Tues­day, April 3 un­til Sat­ur­day, April 7 at 8 p.m.

On­line book­ing for the show will open on Tues­day, March 20. Ticket prices are stu­dents €13 for down­stairs, adult €15 for down­stairs and €17 for the bal­cony. Tick­ets can be booked at www.gr8events.ie/avonmore or call 086 8722010 (6 to 8 p.m. daily)

The show is di­rected by Stephen Ac­ton, mu­si­cal di­rec­tor is Naoimh Pen­ston and chore­og­ra­pher is Martina Lynch. The iconic rock opera is a time­less work set against the back­drop of an ex­tra­or­di­nary and uni­ver­sally known series of events.

With mu­sic by An­drew Lloyd Web­ber and lyrics by Tim Rice, this global block­buster tells the story of the fi­nal weeks in the life of Je­sus Christ, from the per­spec­tive of Ju­das Is­car­iot. As Christ’s fol­low­ers grow more fer­vent, Ju­das must make his fate­ful choice be­tween faith and be­trayal. Filled with an ex­cit­ing mix of mu­si­cal styles that draw upon 1970s rock, gospel, folk and funk themes, this con­tem­po­rary imag­in­ing of the bib­li­cal tale fea­tures high-en­ergy dance and pow­er­ful sto­ry­telling.

The so­ci­ety is busy re­hears­ing this riv­et­ing and won­der­ful show with driv­ing rock rhythms and lyric bal­lads, show­cas­ing a won­der­ful front line backed up by a su­per cho­rus on stage. Mu­si­cal num­bers from the show in­clude: What’s the Buzz, Ev­ery­thing’s Al­right, Hosanna, I Don’t Know How To Love Him, Geth­se­mane, Could We Start Again Please, Su­per­star and many more.
