The Dramateurs, Inc. will open their 2016 season with the Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice rock Opera JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR. The production, directed by Tom Lamphere of Sellersville, features a talented group of performers from across the Delaware Valley. Brian Rock of Breinigsville is Jesus and John Jerbasi of Philadelphia plays Judas. Shanna Gates of Gilbertsville takes on the role of Mary Magdalene, Russel White of Phoenixville portrays Pontius Pilate and David Fazzini of Collegeville portrays King Herod.
Borrowing from the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR tells the story of the last seven days in the life of Jesus Christ. Apostle Judas Iscariot is growing concerned that Jesus’ followers will be perceived as a threat to the occupying Roman Empire. An exalted Jesus arrives in Jerusalem only to find the temple filled with unsavory merchants and money lenders. Overrun by a flood of people needing his help, he tells them to heal themselves. Judas, fearing the movement is getting out of control, goes to the Romans and betrays him. Jesus is arrested and sent to King Herod, who condemns him to death on the cross.
Tickets for the production are $19 each with a $2 discount for juniors and seniors. Group reservations (20 or more) are also available. For reservations, visit us online at www.barnplayhouse.org or call the box office at 610-539-2276.
