USD Theatre Presents Classic Rock Musical Jesus Christ Superstar
The show, inspired by the Gospels, explores the relationships of Jesus of Nazareth, Mary Magdalene and Judas Iscariot in the final days of Jesus’ life on earth. The Tony-Award-nominated score by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice features such memorable songs as “I Don’t Know How to Love Him,” “Gethsemane” and “Superstar.”
The show is fast-paced, moving from one scene to the next with nonstop energy and momentum, brought to life by a cast of 30 undergraduate singer/actors. This rock musical has been a favorite of audiences for 45 years, with numerous Broadway productions, cast recordings, a film version, and revivals around the world.
“In a world full of cultural and political doubt that has been driven by a decisive and unmotivated election year, where we see the masses following a person instead of an idea, the relevance of Superstar becomes astounding, and Jesus’ message of action over intention becomes even more significant,” said Director Ryan Fortney.
Tickets for "Jesus Christ Superstar" are $15 for adults, $12 for seniors, $10 for K-12 & non-USD students with ID, and $5 for USD students with ID. Tickets can be purchased from noon-5 p.m. by calling the USD Theatre Box Office at (605) 677-5400 or on the USD Theatre website.
