Elk County Council On The Arts Presents Jesus Christ Superstar – July 21 – 29
The Elk County Council on the Arts is excited to announce upcoming performances of Jesus Christ Superstar, the beloved 1970s rock opera.

This is Jason’s second time directing Jesus Christ Superstar and his vision for the show has become more grandiose each time. “The show will be a morph of modern day and past depiction using technology to enhance the story while sticking to the original script,” Phipps said. The call for auditions drew interest from as far away as Pittsburgh, Cleveland and the New York border. Phipps said the production will feature a well-established orchestra, exceptional choreography, and top notch lighting and sound. Performances: July 21, 22, 23, 27, 28, 29, at 7 PM at the Ridgway High School, 1403 Hill Street, Ridgway.
