This epic production will be directed by Jason Phipps, elementary music teacher at the Ridgway Area School District. 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. Tickets: $10, available at the door or in advance at the ECCOTA Gallery, 237 Main Street, Ridgway. For more information see ECCOTA.com or call 814-772-7051.
