Performing arts students took to the stage for their end of year show spectacular, Jesus Christ Superstar.
Over 50 students from Performing and Production Arts, Music, Art and Theatrical hair and make-up came together to produce this challenging and outstanding show.
The global phenomenon has wowed audiences for over 40 years. Set against the backdrop of an extraordinary and universally-known series of events from the bible, the performance is seen through the eyes of Judas Iscariot.
The “Rock Opera” has back to back songs which take the audience to new heights, from the powerful title song of “Jesus Christ Superstar” as well as the ever popular ballad “I don’t know how to love him”. With epic songs such as “The Temple” and “The last Supper”, there really is something for everyone.
More than 50 students from Stoke on Trent College studying Level 1, 2, 3 and 4 performing arts, as well as technical theatre learners, came together for the hit musical from Tuesday 21st June 2016 through to Saturday 25th June 2016.
The production showcased the learner’s drama, dance and musical theatre skills that they have been developing on their courses.
The end of year performance gives the learners the opportunity to showcase everything they have learnt that year. The production design students complete the whole staging in just six weeks as they would in the industry to give the learners as real as an experience as possible.
Jesus Christ Superstar took place in the college’s 220-seater theatre, situated in the Live Nation Centre for Media and Performing Arts, at the Burslem Campus off Moorland Road.
