Following our critically-acclaimed 2013 summer production of LES MISERABLES at Yardley Hall, 2014 multi award-winning summer production of BIG RIVER at The Kauffman Center, 2015 award-winning production of INTO THE WOODS at Yardley Hall and massive production of BIG FISH at The Kauffman Center in 2016, The Culture House was presented with the challenge of deciding what large summer musical to produce for summer 2017. We ultimately decided on the powerful and challenging rock-opera, JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR. We are excited to bring this musical, performed by 54 local professionals, to the beautiful Polsky Theatre on July 20- 23, 2017.

A global phenomenon that has wowed audiences for over 40 years, JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR 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. It was the first musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice to be produced for the professional stage and first came to major theatres when it debuted on Broadway in 1971. Less than 12 months after the Broadway show opened, the rock spectacle went to London, exploding onto the West End in a hugely successful production. By 1980, after 3,358 performances, JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR had become the longest running musical in West End history at the time.
