Clamouring to perform Superstar
COMMUNITY theatre group Players 2 is celebrating its 35th anniversary with a performance of Jesus Christ Superstar.
Amateur groups have been allowed to perform Andrew Lloyd Webber’s and Tim Rice’s timeless musical for years, but in London it has been heavily restricted. Finally, it is available to groups everywhere and Players 2 has jumped at the chance to stage its own version of the classic rock opera.
It follows the last seven days of the Messiah’s life, bringing together rock songs, wit and emotion, and featuring such hits as I Don’t Know How To Love Him and Superstar.
Players 2 was formed in 1979 and has staged 90 shows to date. What? Jesus Christ Superstar Where? Compass Theatre, Glebe Avenue, Uxbridge, Ickenham, UB10 8PD When?
