90 seasons. 400 productions. Now for something new! Get ready for an incredible theatrical experience as the Little Theatre of Fall River celebrates our 90th season in grand style with a spectacular performance of Jesus Christ Superstar at the iconic Narrows Center for the Arts! For the first time in Little Theatre's proud history, the historic organization will present a groundbreaking rock musical at the Narrows Center for the Arts, one of the most acclaimed venues for live music!

Get ready to immerse yourself in the raw, electrifying energy of this production. With a vibe reminiscent of a rock concert, this rendition of Jesus Christ Superstar will captivate you with its soul-stirring music, celebrating the iconic sounds of the '70s and the phenomenal music that continues to resonate through generations. And for those who grew up with the legendary "Brown Album," this performance will be a nostalgic journey back in time. The music, the ambiance, and the passion onstage promise an unforgettable trip down memory lane.

It's a special event that guarantees to dazzle and leave a lasting impression. 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 50 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 theaters and professionals alike, Superstar continues to touch new generations of audiences and performers. Jesus Christ Superstar was Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s third collaboration (after The Likes of Us and Joseph). As no one was willing to back their idea as a stage show, the pair first produced the single "Superstar,” sung by Murray Head, near the end of 1969, followed by a concept album of the project with MCA in 1970.
