      We are delighted to welcome audiences back to the Open Air Theatre as we re-open our theatre with Jesus Christ Superstar: The Concert. With social distancing, seating capacity has been reduced to 390 seats (down from 1,256), and regular visitors will notice many changes to how we need to operate in order to keep everyone safe and to comply with government guidance. We have created an information hub to share the work we are doing and to help you prepare for your visit.

      This special concert staging of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Jesus Christ Superstar, is created by the team behind our Olivier and Evening Standard Award-winning production, which played two sell-out runs here (2016/2017), a season at the Lyric Opera of Chicago (2018), and 60 dates at the Barbican Theatre (2019), before embarking on an ongoing three year North American tour.

      Casting for Jesus Christ Superstar: The Concert has been confirmed. With 9 performances a week, the roles of Jesus, Judas and Mary are double-cast, giving audiences the opportunity to see any combination of actors as they alternate performances. A performance schedule will not be confirmed in advance, allowing maximum flexibility.

      The creative team is: Will Burton CDG and David Grindrod CDG (casting); Ed Bussey (associate musical director); Lee Curran (lighting design); Tom Deering (musical supervisor); Barbara Houseman (associate director, voice and text); Drew McOnie (choreography); Nick Lidster for Autograph (sound design); Tom Scutt (set design) after the set design for EVITA by Soutra Gilmour; Tom Scutt (costume design); Timothy Sheader (director); Kate Waters (fight director) and Denzel Westley-Sanderson (co-director).

      SINGLE SEATS With social distancing, seating capacity has been dramatically reduced to 390 seats (down from 1,256). This makes producing any large-scale show economically extremely challenging, particularly as we are an unfunded organisation. Therefore, the number of single seats is limited to 812 across the run, as we have had to group seats to maximise capacity. Here is a list of the single seats that are available, to help you locate them quickly.

      Band A - J14 | J15 | J41 | J42 | J52 | J55 | K38 | L9 | L56 | O53 | O63
      Band B - R85
      Band C - Grass Bank Gangway 1, #4 | Grass Bank Gangway 1, #5 SOLD OUT

      Running time: approximately 90 minutes (no interval)
