Event description
Whitireia Musical Theatre presents the beloved Lloyd Webber/Rice smash hit rock-opera!

About this Event

Haunting. Iconic. Timeless.

In a year marking the show’s 50th anniversary, we’re thrilled to announce our highly anticipated grand-scale production from Whitireia Musical Theatre: Jesus Christ Superstar.

From concept-album beginnings, to weeks at the top of the Billboard pop charts and countless star-studded retellings on film and stage, this epic rock n roll re-imagining of the last days of Christ has maintained an eerily prescient relevance since its inception in 1970.

Stirring music and powerful lyrics from superstar creators Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice render prophets, political rebels, power-mongers and scapegoats with heart-breaking clarity; creating an operatic masterpiece that continues to inspire, move, and transport audiences and performers alike.

Director Leigh Evans and musical director Kate Marshall have created a Jesus Christ Superstar to excite both fans and newcomers. This vision firmly honours the show's 70's rock roots, speaks to its influences, and brings fresh perspectives to casting and staging. Powerhouse performers from last year's critically acclaimed sold-out production of Cry-Baby: The Musical and 2018's The Addams Family are joined by an astonishingly talented company from across the Musical Theatre student body to present a Jesus Christ Superstar worthy of joining the 50 year legacy of one of the genre’s greatest works.

14 September - The government has confirmed that New Zealand's nationwide COVID alert level will remain at Level Two until (at least) Monday September 21st, five days into the season of Jesus Christ Superstar at Te Auaha.
We realise that many of you - especially those of you intending to come to shows on the 17th, 18th, 19th or 20th of September - are probably anxious to find out what the ongoing level two restriction means for your bookings.
At this stage, we're getting advice, looking at options, and figuring out what's possible. As soon as we have an update for you, we'll get in touch via email, so please keep an eye on your inbox. You're also always welcome to reach out to us with any questions or concerns by sending an email to venues@teauaha.com.
Finally, another massive thank you to you all for your patience and support so far. Please keep Superstar's cast and crew in your thoughts: production week is always tough, but this news has made it a bit tougher than usual. Hang in there. You'll hear from us soon.
