Riccarton Players have chosen this year the rock classic musical of the 70’s


Based on the Gospel according to St Matthew, the show has lost none of its appeal, and has been revived again and again on Broadway.  It’s tunes have become classics in their own right, and with simple staging, the production will use music, comedy and dance to make it a fun presentation. It will perform in the environs of the Drama Theatre at Rangi Ruru, which with limited seating and staging should make for a very intimate presentation. 

Diane Coad is the Musical Director, Karyn Gibson is the Choreographer, and completing the team is Doug Clarke as Director.

There are ten named roles (5 men and 5 women) and we will be looking for a small ensemble also.

Minimum age 16 years

Auditions are being held on Friday June 24 (Matariki) beginning at 9am at the performance venue


Performance dates:  5 – 15 OCTOBER, 2022
