Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre has today released first look production images of the concert staging of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Jesus Christ Superstar: The Concert which runs until Sunday 27 September 2020.
As capacity for the 1,256 seat venue has been reduced to 390 to meet government guidance on social distancing, there will be 9 performances a week, across the 6-week run, to make the production economically viable. Therefore the roles of Jesus, Judas and Mary will be double-cast, giving audiences the opportunity to see any combination of actors as they alternate performances (a schedule will not be confirmed in advance to allow for flexibility).
Declan Bennett and Pepe Nufrio will play the role of Jesus, Tyrone Huntley and Ricardo Afonso will play the role of Judas and Anoushka Lucas and Maimuna Memon both reprise their Open Air Theatre performances as Mary.
Also confirmed to star in the epic concert are: David Thaxton (Pilate), Shaq Taylor (Herod), Ivan De Freitas (Caiaphas), Nathan Amzi (Annas), Phil King (Peter), Cedric Neal (Simon), and Genesis Lynea, Rosa O’Reilly, Elliotte Williams-N’Dure (Soul Singers).
Completing the cast are: Daniel Bailey, Dale Evans, Rosie Fletcher, Josh Hawkins, Stevie Hutchinson, Billy Nevers, Charlotte Riby, Tinovimbanashe Sibanda, Barnaby Thompson and Tara Young.
Tickets are only available in fixed groups, where 1, 2, 3 or 4 tickets are seated together and each group is distanced from the other groups in the auditorium. All tickets within a particular group must be purchased by one booker. Each group must only consist of one household or support bubble.
