What’s the buzz? The first musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice to be produced for the professional stage, Jesus Christ Superstar has wowed audiences for over 40 years. A timeless work, the rock opera is set against the backdrop of an extraordinary and universally-known series of events but seen, unusually, through the eyes of Judas Iscariot.
Loosely based on the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, Superstar follows the last week of Jesus Christ’s life. The story, told entirely through song, explores the personal relationships and struggles between Jesus, Judas, Mary Magdalene, his disciples, his followers and the Roman Empire.
The iconic 1970s rock score contains such well-known numbers as “Superstar,” “I Don’t Know How to Love Him” and “Gethsemane.” A true global phenomenon and perfect pick for schools, community theatres and professionals alike, Superstar continues to touch new generations of audiences and performers.
Based on the ever-popular, award-winning 1970’s cartoons, this fast-paced musical teaches lessons with clever, catchy tunes.

In keeping with our efforts to put the “community” back in community theatre, we have incorporated community service! On Martin Luther King Day, January 15th from 1:30 – 3:30pm . St Petersburg City Theatre is partnering with Two Hangry Chicks , Meals of Hope and the 6th Grade Girl Scout Cadette Troop #1204 of St Paul Catholic School to pack 10,000 meals for the hungry and provide a theatre workshop for kids aged 7-14.
