Jesus Christ Superstar, The King's Hall Theatre, Herne Bay

Our production of Jesus Christ Superstar, which was presented at The King's Hall Theatre from the 1st to 3rd August 2019, was met by packed houses and standing ovations from our appreciative audiences.  Below is an summation of the show from the National Operatic and Dramatic Society (NODA):

This was a very impressive production which scored on many levels, providing a packed house with a solid and worthwhile evening of musical entertainment of a high standard.  There was an obvious passion on display on stage from the entire company and the talents of the cast and solid musical support made for a great evening at the theatre.
