"What's the Buzz?!....Tell me what's happening!"


There's a lot of buzz surrounding Thursday 19 March 2015. It's opening night for TaDa! Productions Jesus Christ Superstar. This is not the first time this musical has made it's appearance on our local stage....and so close to Easter!

In honour of Throwback Thursday the Archives and Special Collections salutes past productions of this musical. Which show do you remember seeing?

The 1983 version performed at the Stephenville Festival. Is that local NDP MP Ryan Cleary listed as part of the mob? (program 1212 from COLL-138: Newfoundland and Labrador Performing Arts Programs and Handbills)


Or perhaps you caught the version in Grand Falls in 1984? Were you lucky enough to catch Gordon Pinsent in Cyrano de Bergerac the night before? Looks like two nights of fantastic theatre! (program 211 from COLL-138: Newfoundland and Labrador Performing Arts Programs and Handbills)


Or perhaps you went to the production by the Holy Heart Musical Theatre Company in 1988? (program 3141 from COLL-138 Newfoundland and Labrador Performing Arts Programs and Handbills)

Aiden Flynn as Simon with narrators Beth Power and Shelly Neville?




Or maybe it was Artistic Fraud's production in 1998 where all 37 cast members were on stage for every scene acting as a unit... (Poster 1665, COLL-143: Newfoundland and Labrador Performing Arts Posters)


Beothuk Street Players 2006 production? (program 2685 from COLL-138: Newfoundland and Labrador Performing Arts Programs and Handbills)
