About the Work:

Jesus Christ Superstar
is a rock opera, originally released in 1970, with music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Tim Rice. The musical started as a concept album to introduce the piece since there was no funding for the conceived stage work.  It worked. In 1971 the first Broadway production opened and was followed, shortly thereafter, by the release of a multi-million dollar movie. The musical’s style is known as “sung-through” and is influenced by operatic and oratorio tradition. It is a timeless work set against the backdrop of an extraordinary and universally-known series of events but seen, unusually, through the eyes of Judas Iscariot.


Note to our Guests:  On April 15 and 16, The Gregory School is host to 2 very important college counseling fair events! Visit our event post to learn more.  We encourage you to come early to attend these events and then stay for dinner and a show!
