Jesus Christ Superstar, the rock opera, which launched the careers of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber, was the first non-Gilbert and Sullivan musical to be presented by ACT and the hit musical’s first appearance on a PEI stage. It was a significant effort for ACT. Director Allie McCrady noted that all involved in the production “had approached it with respect for its historical and biblical characters” and hoped that the audience would consider it a gift from those involved. They did. As the production dates approached, enthusiasm mounted in the community (there was indeed a “buzz”) and days before opening night the show was sold out. The audience response was overwhelmingly positive and reviews were enthusiastic as well. The production made a significant profit for ACT’s coffers.
