Musical classic is next from EODS

THE ICONIC rock opera Jesus Christ Superstar will be coming to town as Evesham Operatic and Dramatic Society take to the stage at the town’s arts centre.

Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber’s much loved show will be in town from November 13 to 17 at the Victoria Avenue venue.

When first meeting with the cast to introduce her vision for the show, director Alison Roberts asked cast members to imagine a time where one of the most powerful leaders in the world totally divided opinion, where rebellion against the authority rumbled amongst the masses and many looked to one individual to lead them to a brighter future…sound familiar?

The society sought special permission from The Really Useful Group and Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber to present the show as a modernised representation of the classic yet timeless musical.

Rights are usually only granted under the proviso the performance is done in the traditional style of the original presentations.

This is a unique opportunity to see the show performed by an amateur society in this style, backed by a full live rock band and with an ambitious and impressive set design.

Set against the backdrop of an extraordinary and universally-known series of events, the last week of Jesus’ life, the story is told through the eyes of Judas Iscariot and includes such well-known numbers as “Superstar”, “I Don’t Know How to Love Him” and “Gethsemane”.

Tickets are £12 to £15 and available online at or the Almonry on 01386 446944.

EODS’ Jesus Christ Superstar is an Amateur production by arrangement with The Musical Company Ltd.
