This World-Famous Rock Opera Will Breathe New Life Into Your Weekend Plans

Celebrate the 50th anniversary of one of the most beloved musicals of all time! On Thursday, April 11th, the Misericordia University Players will present Jesus Christ Superstar, the masterpiece musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber that has captivated viewers for decades. Make plans now to see this must-see show right here in the community!

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. The rock opera debuted on Broadway in 1971 and is loosely based on the Gospel account of the last week of Jesus' life, ending with his crucifixion. The award-winning music includes the well-known songs, "Everything's Alright," "I Don't Know How to Love Him," and "Hosanna."

This show will be performed live by the Misericordia University Players. Misericordia University is a Catholic university in northeast Pennsylvania, founded by the Sisters of Mercy, that provides caring, motivated students with a challenging education. Misericordia University provides a quality education through the tenets of mercy, service, justice and hospitality—charisms set forth by the school's founders. The university has been guided by these principles for more than 90 years.

Jesus Christ Superstar is one show you’ll remember for years to come! Make plans now to see one of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s most enduring works when it is performed by Misericordia University students.
