SLT holds auditions for "Jesus Christ Superstar"

In the first ever rock opera by the authors of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and Evita, and composer of CATS and Phantom of the Opera, Christ's final days are dramatized with emotional intensity, thought-provoking edge, and explosive theatricality. Wowing 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, seen through the eyes of Judas Iscariot. Propelled by a stirring score, by turns driving and majestic, satirical and tender, Jesus Christ Superstar is an impassioned global phenomenon.
