Open rehearsal in room 339 a great success!

by carolyn with no comments

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!

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:
