World's first rock musical comes to Riverside

FOLLOWING a string of hit productions, Packemin Productions is returning to Riverside Theatres in February with a staggering new production of the world’s first rock musical, Jesus Christ Superstar.


Starring JOE KALOU (Hi-5 & Rock Shows with Jon English) as Jesus, Toby Francis  (Kinky Boots & High Fidelity) as Judas and Brittanie Shipway (Big Fish) as Mary this show will feature strong performances, bursting with life on the Riverside stage.
 
A global phenomenon that has wowed audiences for over 40 years, Jesus Christ Superstar is a timeless work set against the backdrop of an extraordinary and universally-known series of events but seen, unusually, through the eyes of Judas Iscariot.
 
As the radical teachings of Jesus are evermore embraced, Judas increasingly questions the enlightened motives of this new prophet, resulting in betrayal.
 
Christ’s final days are dramatized with emotional intensity, thought-provoking edge and explosive theatricality.
 
The show has one of the most stirring and iconic musical theatre scores ever written, and features hit songs including I Don’t Know How to Love Him, Everything’s Alright, Jesus Christ Superstar and Gethsemane.
 
Jesus Christ Superstar illuminates the transcendent power of the human spirit with a passion that goes straight to the heart. It guarantees to be a night in the theatre that you will never forget!
 
Packemin Productions prides itself on bringing some of musical theatre’s most popular shows to Parramatta and doing them in grand style. Their sell-out seasons of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat, Oliver! The Wizard of Oz, Hairspray, Annie, Beauty and the Beast, The Phantom of the Opera, West Side Story, Mary Poppins, Wicked,
 
Miss Saigon, Shrek the Musical  and most recently Legally Blonde have wowed audiences with casts of over 200 performers, huge sets and highly skilled cast, creative and technical teams.
 
They are shows that delight audiences from far and wide and are ones you do not want to miss.
