As promised last year, Argenta Community Theater is gearing up for its second in-house theatrical production, "Jesus Christ Superstar," which will run July 23-28.
There are open calls and dance calls at ACT scheduled for 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. Jan. 10 and 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Jan. 12. Rehearsals start in June. The show will be produced by Judy Tenenbaum, directed by Vincent Insalaco and choreographed by Christen Pitts, with music and orchestrations by Kurt Kennedy and technical set by Sara Cooke.
All of the details are available here.
Last summer, ACT hosted its first in-house show, "Cabaret." Insalaco told the Times that the upcoming production of "Jesus Christ Superstar" would be an homage to his late wife, Sally Riggs.
Riggs was in the original production of the Andrew Lloyd Webber's rock musical in London. "It's a great show that needs to be done here locally, and I think it will capture a lot of people's attention," Insalaco told the Times.
