Jesus Christ Superstar
La Crosse Community Theatre executive director David R. Kilpatrick will make his first appearance as a cast member when LCT launches Jesus Christ Superstar Friday, May 8, and continuing through Sunday, May 24. Performances are Thursdays through Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. and will be in the Lyche Theatre of the Weber Center for the Performing Arts.
"I appeared in this show when I was 19," said Kilpatrick about his La Crosse debut, playing Pontius Pilate. "Once in a while, an opportunity presents itself to participate in a dream role, in a dream play, with a dream director. Many years later, it's an opportunity for me to get it right."
The blockbuster rock opera by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber, Jesus Christ Superstar follows Jesus of Nazareth in the final days before his crucifixion as he struggles to prepare his disciples for what is to come. Politics, history, and faith collide in a power-packed epic of song and dance that will leave audiences electrified!
Cast members will include Bradley Weber as Jesus, Brandon Harris as Judas, Emily Ware as Mary Magdalene, David R. Kilpatrick as Pilate, Jonathan Krocker as Caiaphas, Raina Thelen as Annas, Brianna Herber as Simon Zealotes, Alex Attardo as Herod and Nick Brandt as Peter.
Ensemble members will include Laikyn Boettcher, Ryan Brown, Katya Carter, Mary Cate Cichock, Paulo Clermont, Tom Desjarlais, Andrea Fetsch, Cody Flick, Mark Flottmeyer, Andrew Scott Helman, Brianna Herber, Connie Huebsch, Alyssa Johnson, Dustin Luecke, Joe Philips, Maria Runde, Matthew Springer, Cecilia Taggart, Michala Taggart, Nisse Taunt, Emily Vieth, Julia Whalen and Matthew Wudi.
Community theatre is open to everyone, Kilpatrick stressed, regardless of skills, training or experience. "Half this cast is on our stage for the first time. Any time staff members can work alongside volunteers and come to understand their challenges and rewards, La Crosse Community Theatre is enhanced."
LCT Artistic Director Greg Parmeter will direct. The production team also will includes music direction by Peter Bosgraaf, choreography by Jennifer Wilkinson, conducting by Jeff Copp, set/lighting design by Dillon McArdle, costume design by Kris Peterson, sound design by Chris Scheuermann, stage management by Kelsey Taunt and direction assistance by Sean McDevitt.
