An exciting new performance is making its way onto the stage next week.

The Essex Group will be performing the powerful rock opera Jesus Christ Superstar from July 16 to 19 at the Witham Public Hall.

The show, which was originally showcased by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber, toured arenas and was seen by millions.

The Essex group have casted the show with some of the most talented actors living in Essex and have put the show together in just eight weeks.

Sean Quigley, who plays the role of Jesus, will be returning to the stage after taking a five year break after his performance in Les Miserables where he played Valjean.

The musical reflects the last seven days Jesus Christ had on earth, creating an emotional and moving show catered for everyone.

Doors open at 7pm, with a 7.30pm start (Saturday Matinee performance will begin at 2.30pm) with tickets costing £6 for children and £15 for adults. To book your tickets call: 01376567677 or alternatively you book online:
