Largs Amateur Operatic Society will bring ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ to local audiences in 2018.

The show will be an amateur production by arrangement with The Really Useful Group Ltd and will be performed in Barrfields Theatre, Largs from Wednesday 28th to Saturday 31st March.
After the success of ‘Evita’ in 2016, the operatic society will perform another composition by the talented duo of Andrew Lloyd Webber (Music) and Tim Rice (Lyrics). ‘ Jesus Christ Superstar’ is a rock opera loosely based on the accounts in the Gospels of the last week in the life of Jesus, beginning with the preparation for the arrival of Jesus and his disciples in Jerusalem and ending with the crucifixion. The show has been a global phenomenon for over 40 years, wowing audiences worldwide. It looks at the well-known events through the eyes of Judas Escariot.
Largs Academy sixth year pupil Sarah Dillion will play Mary in the forthcoming production.
