Timothy Sheader(Crazy for You, Into the Woods) directs this mesmerizing new production of the iconic global phenomenon, JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR which comes to Norwich Theatre Royal for 1 week only!

Starring Ian McIntosh (We Will Rock You, Follies, Beautiful: The Carole King Musical)as Jesus, Shem Omari James(Dreamgirls UK Tour) as Judas and Hannah Richardson(Sting’s The Last Ship)as Mary.

Originally staged by London’s Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre, this reimagined production won the 2017 Olivier Award for Best Musical Revival, garnering unprecedented reviews and accolades. Choreographed by Drew McOnie (King Kong, Strictly Ballroom), with music and lyrics by 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’. Don’t miss your chance to see this “gorgeous, thrilling, heavenly musical.”–The Guardian.
