Let Epsom Light Opera Company transport you to the 1950s for an up-tempo version of this timeless classic. With modern jazz arrangements of Arthur Sullivan's glorious music whilst retaining all of W. S. Gilbert's bitingly acerbic wit, this show has everything; beautiful ballads, stunning choreography and laugh out loud humour. Get ready to snap your fingers and tap your toes with the ‘Gentlemen Of Japan’, ‘Three Little Maids’ and our favourite wand'ring minstrel, Nanki Poo. If you like your jazz hot and your comedy cool, you will love this sizzling musical.

Autumn 2019: Jesus Christ Superstar

Dates: Tuesday 15th - Saturday 19th October 2019

Director: Adrian Waller
Musical Director: Amy Bryce
Choreographer: Matthew Howes

Show Launch Date: TBC - Approx May 2019

Audition Date: TBC - Approx May/June 2019

Jesus Christ Superstar tells the story of biblical Jesus in the final days leading up to his crucifixion. A rock opera by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, the musical has no spoken dialogue and is sometimes considered a modern rock-opera. Loosely based on the Gospels, Superstar focuses on the personal conflicts between Jesus, his disciples, the people of Israel, and the leadership of Rome. Special attention is played to the relationship between Judas Iscariot and Jesus, as well as Jesus’ relationship with Mary Magdalene. The musical is unique among biblical retellings in that it focuses on both Judas’ struggle making the decision to betray Jesus and Jesus’ human psychology, fear, and anger in understanding and accepting his role as both leader and martyr. The show is a product of its era, permeated with 1970’s rock, gospel, folk and funk themes, modern language and colloquialisms, and high-energy dance numbers.
