Casting for Jesus Christ Superstar in Concert at Regent's Park

Casting has just been announced for the special concert staging of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber's Jesus Christ Superstar which will run at Regent's Park Open Air Theatre for 70 performances only from Friday 14 August for six weeks to 27th September. There will be  reduced capacity down to 390 seats.  
Many roles in the production will be shared with different performers taking on different dates with Declan Bennet and Pepe Nufrio sharing the title role with Anoushka Lucas and Maimuna Memon as Mary Magdalene, Tyrone Huntley Ricardo Alfonso and David Thaxton as Pilate, Shaq Taylor as King Herod, Ivan de Freitas as Caiaphas, Nathan Amzi as Annas, Phil King as Peter, Cedric Neal as Simon with Genesis Lynea, Rosa O'Reilly, and Elliotte Williams D'Nure as the Soul Sisters.

The cast will also feature Daniel James Bailey, Dale Evans, Rosie Fletcher, Joshua Zac Hawkins, Stevie Hutchinson, Billy Luke Nevers, Charlotte Riby, Tino Sibanda, Baranby Thompson and Tara Young. 

William Village, Executive Director said: "Following the government's announcement last week that outdoor theatres may re-open, we have been working around the clock to find a way to open in August and September this year. With social distancing, seating capacity has been dramatically reduced to 390 seats (down from 1,256). This makes producing any large-scale show economically extremely challenging, particularly as we are an unfunded organisation. Nevertheless, both for us as a venue, and the industry as a whole, we believe it is incumbent upon us to do everything possible to re-open this year, and we're delighted to announce this special concert staging of our award-winning production of Jesus Christ Superstar.
