Putney Light Operatic Society are delighted to announce their Spring 2020 show is ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’.

PLOS are helping to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Putney Methodist Church, who have been long time supporters of PLOS.

It is with the help of the church and our dedicated members, who have been helping us to fundraise over the last few months, that allows us to be able to put on this fantastic show in such a unique space.

 

Jesus Christ Superstar is a Rock Opera written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice. It follows the last few weeks of Jesus’ life told from the perspective of Judas Iscariot. Whilst the story is a biblical story Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice have stated that they neither wanted to confirm nor contradict that Jesus was the son of God, instead offering a show that looks at the psychology of Jesus the human being, and those who followed or opposed him.

Despite the fact there’s no dialogue in the show there is plenty of gritty, hard hitting acting for both principals and ensemble to sink their teeth into.

There are a variety of opportunities for featured dancers to showcase their talent, plus high-energy movement for the entire ensemble.

 

The first meeting is Sunday 1st December at Ackroyden Halls, Montfort Place, Southfields SW19 6QL

At the first meeting you will be able to find out more about PLOS, the show and meet the creative team.

Our choreographer will be teaching the audition dance and there may be an opportunity to sing through some of the audition pieces with the musical director.

 

Auditions will be held at Ackroyden Halls on Thursday 5th December and Sunday 8th December.

Audition forms must be sent to plos2020jcs@gmail.com by 12:00pm on Wednesday 4th December.
