The cast of Jesus Christ Superstar performed to a full room last night 6p-9p (after warmups 5p-6p). The crowd seemed to really like the work! People would not leave. We loved that dilemma. Nonetheless, chairs freed up all night long for the very large crowd that visited us. IT and The Children’s Theatre Company added a performing arts component to the A&H Council’s Gallery Promenade. A good time was had by all, not the least being Director Keith Chamberlain who has never had so much fun!
JOIN cast of Jesus Christ Superstar tomorrow, Sept. 27, 5p-9p in Room 339, 3rd floor, Central School at A&H Council’s Gallery Promenade! From 5p-6p join with cast in vocal & physical warmups. From 6p-9p WATCH OPEN REHEARSAL led by Director Keith Chamberlain. Feel free to come & go. Seating will be provided. Also, down the hall VISIT The Children’s Theatre Co. — teen actors costumed as Disney storybook characters will give tours in character! VISIT Dewey Fine Arts Gallery is between the two. Refreshments in 3rd floor hallway.
Buy “Jesus Christ Superstar” tickets! Front 10 rows are $35, plus fees. Back rows are $25. Balcony is $20, plus fees (always fees!) Our advice: Buy in person at the LC Civic Center to save on the Ticketmaster fees AND choose seat location. Seriously. Or send out of town friends to a Ticketmaster outlet to do same. Calling Ticketmaster can be a good thing, too. Sage advice for a great musical…all-pro and all-local. Ticketmaster link is:
