"What's the buzz?" ... MC Music and Drama presents JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR

By popular demand, two nights have been added to the run for the MC/MCT production of JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR, which begins THIS WEEKEND at the Yucca Theatre in downtown Midland

From Tim Jebsen
MC Drama Faculty, and MCT Executive Director

Following up on the success of HAIRSPRAY in 2011, MC Music and Drama are partnering with Midland Community Theatre to produce JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR at the Yucca Theatre in April. This show includes a cast of 30 (with several MC students and faculty in the cast), a choir of 14 (made up of mostly MC students), and a band with 10 musicians (including MC students and faculty).
There are four public performances of this great musical - all performances take place at the Yucca Theatre, 208 North Colorado in downtown Midland:


Friday, April 19, 2013 at 8:00 p.m.
Saturday, April 20, 2013 at 8:00 p.m.


Friday, April 26, 2013 at 8:00 p.m.
Saturday, April 27, 2013 at 8:00 p.m.

Friday, May 3, 2013 at 8:00 p.m.

Saturday, May 4, 2013 at 8:00 p.m.

Tickets are now available through the MCT Box Office - hours are Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. (432) 570-4111 or www.mctmidland.org

IMPORTANT - Midland College faculty, staff and students can all obtain one free ticket or this show. However, there is one thing you need to know - FREE MC tickets can NOT be obtained through the website - you will need to call during business hours or stop by the Box Office at 2000 West Wadley (you can also get them at the door one hour prior to curtain). However, tickets are already on sale, and we have already opened the balcony to several performances so you will want to get your tickets NOW in order to reserve the best seats for the show.



JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR - Jesus Christ Superstar is a rock opera by Andrew Lloyd Webber with lyrics by Tim Rice. The musical started as a rock opera concept recording before its first staging on Broadway in 1971. The musical is based very loosely on the Gospels' accounts of the last week of Jesus' life, beginning with the preparation for the arrival of Jesus and his disciples in Jerusalem and ending with the crucifixion. It highlights political and interpersonal struggles between Judas Iscariot and Jesus. It follows the form of a traditional passion play.

Support your MC Music and Drama faculty and students and see a great show - we hope to see you at the Yucca Theatre!
