Jefferson Performing Arts Society presents JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR


Columbia Theatre for the Performing Arts Fri, Apr 5 7:30 PM


Experience the passion of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s famously energetic and anachronistic rock opera telling the story of Jesus’ final days. 

This controversial and popular 1971 Broadway musical infused with rock, gospel, folk, and funk as well as modern colloquialisms is set against the events told in the Gospels as seen through the eyes of Judas Iscariot. The show follows the last week of Jesus Christ's life leading up to his betrayal by Judas and his crucifixion by the Romans. Combining ancient political history and modern sensibilities, this work explores timeless themes of fame, revolution, radicalism, and humility.
