What happens when substance is overshadowed by celebrity? In JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR, Judas is torn between his friend's message and the repercussions of fame. This rock opera by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice puts a modern spin on the familiar story of the last seven days of Jesus of Nazereth. The authors freely imagine the motives and the thoughts of Jesus, Judas, the Apostles and others with driving rockers, sweet ballads and a little bit of soul.
YMTC shows attract a broad audience to their professional quality productions; the group is a magnet for exceptional young performers from all over the Bay Area. This production of JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR brings together a stellar cast of young talent from Berkeley, Oakland, Albany, El Cerrito, and San Francisco. Known for the skill of its actors/singers, its beautifully designed sets, costumes, and props, YMTC showcases talented teens, many of who go on to some of the best college theater programs in the country. The young performers for this production will be backed by a 7-piece rock band, playing the Broadway orchestration.
