PUCC Night at the Muny: Jesus Christ Superstar

PUCC Night at the Muny – Jesus Christ Superstar


Friday Night, June 16| 8:00pm | The Muny in Forest Park

Ticket includes a free backstage tour and carpooling from church if needed.  Price will vary from $11.25 to $15 per ticket depending on how many sign up.  The Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber phenomenon returns. Jesus Christ Superstar was an album that became a cultural phenomenon, then Broadway’s first rock opera and remains a world-wide favorite.  With classic songs like “I Don’t Know How to Love Him,”  “Heaven on Their Minds” and the title song, this bold and rocking retelling of the gospels will leave you singing nothing but heavenly praises.

Contact Dan Connors at connorsd@aol.com or 314-651-0279 by June 1 if you are interested.
