Amas Musical Theatre’s (Donna Trinkoff, Artistic Producer) Rosetta LeNoire Musical Theatre Academy will present Jesus Christ Superstar, a Rock Opera with music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Tim Rice. The story is loosely based on the Gospels' accounts of the last week of Jesus's life, beginning with the preparation for the arrival of Jesus and his disciples in Jerusalem and ending with the crucifixion.
Directed by Christopher Scott, with choreography by Monica Johnson and musical direction by Evan Alparone, the production will feature 17 members of “The Teen Academy" - Assanatu Afriju, Cassandra Barkett, Daniella Berman, Ali Bryan, Brandon Emann, Rowan Fisher, Nicole Klokiw, Emily Lang, Mateo Lizcano, Marisa Luft, Fofie Johnson, Lexy Piton, Blu Radway, Cindy Simon, Alyssa Velazquez, Molly Viega, and Tiffany Zahariev.
“After last year’s successful production of Hair, we made the decision to follow up with another rock-influenced musical,” says Amas Artistic Producer Donna Trinkoff. “We also decided to explore gender fluidity with our casting. Little did we know at the time that the recent live television presentation was in the works! Our students were further inspired seeing the pros at work and our students have really worked hard and have made some exciting and bold choices.”
The creative team includes: Josh Iacovelli (Set Design), Joan Racho-Jansen (Lighting Design), David Rigler (Costume Design), Ian McDonald (Production Supervisor) and Craig Rosenthal (Production Stage Manager).
