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.
