The classic Andrew Lloyd Webber rock opera “Jesus Christ Superstar” will continue April 20-22. Friday and Saturday shows are at 7:30 p.m. and the Sunday shows is a 2:30 p.m. matinee. Seating begins 45 minutes before any show.
Featuring well-known songs such as “I Don’t Know How to Love Him” and “Jesus Christ Superstar,” the show tells the story of Jesus’ final days through song. With a cast that numbers more than 25 actors, and a full rock orchestra, the theater should be bursting with music for the event.
Under the direction of Austin Blair and Melissa Nielsen, the cast includes Adam Leute as Jesus, Tank Jackson as Judas, Sydne Nielsen as Mary Magdalene, Jon Rose as Caiaphas, Clay Nielsen as Pilate and Jordan Rimpela as King Herod. The ABOB cast will be performing the original version of the show, not the revived version.
Tickets for “Jesus Christ Superstar” (and all ABOB shows) are $10 adults and $8 students. They may be reserved by calling 440-599-7529.
The Oscars and the sci-fi classic Dr. Who blended together Saturday, Jan. 20 at Arlene’s Broadway on Buffalo in Conneaut for the theater’s second annual awards night. Nicknamed “The BOBbies,” the awards night honors outstanding performances from the previous year’s slate of shows.
Emcee David Bucci arrived onstage for the event in a recreated Dr. Who-esque tardis - the British police box which doubles as a time machine in the cult BBC show. Bucci kicked off the evening, which featured awards in 20 catagories.
The program was run Oscar-style, with brief videos of the nominees’ performance, followed by the announcement of the winner. Voting was done by members of the ABOB Advisory Board and directors/music directors.
The first awards of the evening were given out to youth performers. Alex Shevchik was honored as Best Youth Lead for her role as “Annie” in “Annie.” Emerson Ross won the Best Supporting Youth award.
The awards night also saw the introduction of the “Nik Of Time” award, which is dedicated to the memory of Nik Tressler, a longtime area actor who passed away shortly after his final performance, ABOB’s production of “1776.” The award is presented to the person who steps in to save a production.
The year also saw the introduction a live video stream from the event to Facebook and the opportunity for audience members to decide the final three awards through realtime online voting - the Best Techie, Best Stage Mom and “Boobie” awards. The “Boobie” was given out for the best/funniest screwup on stage. For full list of winners, see "Next Up" page.
