Lyrics by TIM RICE Music by ANDREW LLOYD WEBBER
Following its overwhelming sell-out success in 2016, Jesus Christ Superstar is back!
Winner of the Olivier Award for Best Musical Revival - and Best Musical in the Evening Standard Awards - the production returns in an extended engagement (now playing until 23 Sept), giving audiences one final chance to see it in its original home.
Declan Bennett, Tyrone Huntley (winner of the Evening Standard Emerging Talent Award for his performance last summer), David Thaxton and Peter Caulfield reprise their performances as Jesus, Judas, Pilate and Herod.
Full casting for our 2017 production to be announced.

"VIVID and COMPELLING. Each new production needs a sprinkling of directorial genius to give it wings. Delightfully, the Open Air Theatre makes this work soar.
Timothy Sheader offers some of the most stylish direction I’ve seen all year”
“AN ALMIGHTY REVELATION
Each song is sung with such feeling that the soul of the piece, so volatile in tempo, comes roaring through.
Superstar’s potency and its Christ-like radicalism – courting sacrilege, achieving an essence of spiritual intensity – is reborn"
"A GORGEOUS, THRILLING, HEAVENLY MUSICAL. Wit, lyricism and satirical bite abound in this dramatic revival of the classic rock opera with a first-rate cast.
An unexpected and considerable pleasure that really rocks"
"The resurrection of the rock opera is cause for celebration”
