Jesus Christ Superstar CANCELLED
Aug 6 @ 7:30 pm
Peace Center

Jesus Christ Superstar is an iconic musical phenomenon with a worldwide fan base.

In celebration of its 50th Anniversary, a new mesmerizing production comes to North America. Originally staged by London’s Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre and helmed by the acclaimed director Timothy Sheader (Crazy for You, Into the Woods) and award winning choreographer Drew McOnie (King Kong, Strictly Ballroom), this production won the 2017 Olivier® Award for Best Musical Revival, garnering unprecedented reviews and accolades. Appealing to both theater audiences and concert music fans, this production pays tribute to the historic 1971 Billboard Album of the Year while creating a modern, theatrical world that is uniquely fresh and inspiring.

With music and lyrics by Emmy®, Grammy®, Oscar®, and Tony® winners Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, Jesus Christ Superstar is set against the backdrop of an extraordinary series of events during the final weeks in the life of Jesus Christ as seen through the eyes of Judas. Reflecting the rock roots that defined a generation, the legendary score includes “I Don’t Know How to Love Him,” “Gethsemane,” and “Superstar.”

 Online Costume Drama: A Fashion Show 
Aug 8 @ 7:30 pm
Online streaming

August 8, 2020 * 7:30 pm
Presented as an online streaming event

For the first time in its 9 year history, Costume Drama: A Fashion Show will be performed in YOUR living room!

Fifteen local designers have been working hard to create jaw-dropping garments from unconventional materials. So far, we’ve seen a few detail photos – keyboards and watches, tarps and cellophane, cardboard and office supplies – and we can’t wait to see the completed pieces! That will happen later this month, when we’ll be working with BClip Productions to film Costume Drama. We’ve scheduled one designer/model pair at a time and will film over several days so that we can meet safety guidelines.  

Go ahead and circle AUGUST 8 on your calendar! Tickets will go on sale for Costume Drama next week (don’t worry, we’ll send a reminder!)
