2018 THEATER IN THE PARK PRESENTS:
JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR
DRAKE PARK, BEND, OR
Last year, we hosted two brilliant performances of what is thought to be Shakespeare’s first tragedy, “Titus Andronicus.” This year, we’re shaking things up by broadening the creative work that we are showcasing in the park to include works outside of Shakespeare with Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “Jesus Christ Superstar.”
What’s the buzz? The first musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice to be produced for the professional stage, Jesus Christ Superstar has wowed audiences for over 40 years. A timeless work, the rock opera is set against the backdrop of an extraordinary and universally-known series of events but seen, unusually, through the eyes of Judas Iscariot.
