WHAT’S THE BUZZ?

What happens when a group of geeks attend a comic-con panel to explore the parallels between our most famous historical figures and the heroes and villains of popular culture?  To find out, join Musical Theatre Productions’ incredible cast of Jesus Christ Superstar as they don their favourite jeans and comic book t-shirts to bring this modern retelling of a masterpiece to life!

Jesus Christ Superstar is the global phenomenon that has wowed audiences for over 40 years!  As Jesus’ radical teachings are evermore embraced, Judas increasingly questions the enlightened motives of this new prophet, resulting in betrayal.  Christ's final days are dramatized with emotional intensity, thought-provoking edge and explosive theatricality through the medium of rock music.

Share the experience as Musical Theatre Productions re-imagines this incredible show to appeal to new audiences as well as die-hard fans!
