Jesus Christ Superstar

Performed from Wed 3 — Sat 6 Jul


Presented by CTC

What’s the buzz? The award-winning CTC bring you Jesus Christ Superstar.

A timeless work that has wowed audiences for over 40 years, this rock opera is set against the backdrop of an extraordinary and universally-known series of events but seen, unusually, through the eyes of Judas Iscariot.

Loosely based on the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, Superstar follows the last week of Jesus Christ’s life. The story, told entirely through song, explores the personal relationships and struggles between Jesus, Judas, Mary Magdalene, his disciples, his followers and the Roman Empire.

The iconic 1970s rock score contains well-known numbers, such as Superstar, I Don’t Know How to Love Him and Gethsemane. A true global phenomenon.


This is an amateur production presented as part of the New Wolsey’s annual Open Season. Find out more by browsing the Creative Learning section of our website.
