Well, we are now one month into our rehearsals for our upcoming production of Andrew Lloyd Webber's Jesus Christ Superstar. The cast and crew have been working incredibly hard. The cast have already worked through the entire first act under the direction of JJ Geelen and are now learning the choreography. From day one the cast, lead by Robert Bell (Jesus), Penny Smith (Judas) and Zoe Tammita (Mary), have been astounded at how good the show is sounding. And it will continue to impress as each rehearsal adds a new element: the chorus, the live rock band, the choreography and soon the staging and costumes. There were cheers and yes, some tears, the first time Penny Smith finished her opening number, 'Heaven on Their Minds', with the live band. SCCAS audience members will recognize Penny Smith who previously played Nancy in Oliver and Maria in The Sound of Music. Another familiar face stepping into a new role is Jenny Penny (Annie Get Your Gun, The Wizard of Oz) as Annas, Caiaphas's right hand man. Backing the leads will be a chorus of over 25 plus a 15-member band lead by musical director Brenton Osborne.
Jesus Christ Superstar will be performed 8-23 May 2015 in the Victor Harbor Town Hall. Tickets go on sale March 26th, and will be available via the SCCAS website. To keep up to date make sure you like our Facebook page.
