Superstars from the Nelson production of Jesus Christ Superstar came out to the 2013 Castlegar Rotary Dinner Theatre and thrilled the audience performing hit songs from the show as well as other popular Broadway tunes.
The performers included Michael Calladine, Solona Armstrong, Arron Nelson, Gabriel Macdonald, Pat Henman and many more. The wonderful accompanying music was performed by the off, off, off Broadway Band.
The song highlights were many but at the top were Don’t Tell Mama from Three Penny Opera performed by Bessie Wapp; Stars from Les Miserables by Gabriel MacDonald; What’s the Buzz/Strange Thing/Mystifying from Jesus Christ Superstar by Solona Armstrong, Arron Nelson and Michael Calladine; and, of course, the show-stopping final number of Jesus Christ Superstar performed by the whole cast.
The evening included a wonderful prime rib and butter chicken dinner from Bon Appetito Catering, a live auction at intermission, and several draws for prizes.
The dinner theatre is a major fundraising for the Castlegar Sunrise 2000 Rotary to help with local projects as well as projects abroad.
