Global phenomenon musical ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ is hitting the Australian stage after huge acclaim and sold-out seasons in London and North America.


The Oliver Award-winning reimagined production of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s celebrated musical will arrive here in November, at Sydney’s Capitol Theatre, where the original Australian production began in 1972. This will be the beginning of a national tour.

Auditions for the cast are set to begin shortly.

‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ features music and lyrics from Emmy, GRAMMY, Oscar and Tony winners Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber. It was reimagined by London’s Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre, where it originated, and is helmed by Director Timothy Sheader and Choreographer Drew McOnie.

“I am thrilled to be bringing this award-winning production of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s much loved musical ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ to Australia this year,” Producer John Frost says. “Australia has deep affection for this show, from the original concept album which was played in every household, to the original production starring Trevor White and Jon English, through to the sold out-arena performances starring John Farnham as Jesus.”
