The global phenomenon that has wowed audiences for over 40 years comes to Orange County. In association with STS Production, the City of Buena Park Community Services Department/Fine Arts Division is proud to present "Jesus Christ Superstar." Inspired by the hippie culture of California in the late 60s, this 1970s rock opera, featuring iconic music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Tim Rice, is loosely based on the Gospels’ accounts of the last week of Jesus’ life. It weaves together contemporary attitudes and sensibilities with a timeless story, focusing on the political and interpersonal struggles between Judas and Jesus. It asks questions about the nature of fame through powerful vocal performances and high-energy choreography. The production is a celebration of a variety of musical styles, from rock and folk to funk and gospel; it’s a must-see this summer!
