Another new member to our group is Robbie, who will be playing the role of Jesus in out October production of Jesus Christ Superstar. He’s no stranger to the show, the first time Robbie saw Jesus Christ Superstar was to support his brother who played the role of Jesus. Since playing Pony Boy Curtis in The Outsiders at age 16, Robbie has frequently been on stage, performing in various musicals and plays. One thing Robbie has really enjoyed so far was hearing how well the Priest’s all sounded singing together. When he’s not performing, Robbie works in promotions and enjoys anime and socialising. He is looking forward to singing Gethsemane, as it is his favourite song from the show.
Playing the role of Simon is Gerard. Despite being heavily into music and drama, Gerard has never performed in a musical before, so he is looking forward to making up for lost time in our production of Jesus Christ Superstar! Gerard lives and breathes music, for the last ten years he has run his own record shop as well as writing and releasing his own music, and working as a disability support worker. Gerard has loved all the songs from the show so far, particularly Simon Zealots/Poor Jerusalem, but he’s looking forward to hearing the rest of the “cracking tunes” from the second act!
Make sure you come and see what is bound to be another fantastic show.
