For those of us old enough to remember, Jesus Christ Superstar brings back visions of the early 1970’s, when the rock opera was a hit Broadway show and the album topped the music charts. Just in time for Easter, the Delaware Children’s Theatre kicked off  their own version of “Jesus Christ Superstar” to a full house last weekend, with weekend shows through April 10th. This is a special Adult Wing performance for the theatre, which means the cast is essentially adults with about 6 ensemble roles for children.

When JCS debuted on Broadway, it was hailed as a breakthrough since it set an ancient biblical story to contemporary words. The musical portrays the last three days of Christ’s life as seen through the eyes of Judas. Full of heart as well as humor, the soaring score by Andrew Lloyd Webber is unforgettable. DCT’s annual fundraiser, which helps maintain the upkeep of the historic theatre, is recommended for families with kids 7 and up. The production runs through April 10. Tickets available here.
