The performance of Jesus Christ Superstar is an absolutely awesome experience. I was one of the privileged crowd to see the preview. Congratulations to Nikki and all involved. The cast and crew are from all ages and walks of life on the island. The talent is palpable; from the pre-show, the set, the use of space, the voices, the stage direction, the costumes, the acting, the music, the voices, the dancing, the drama, the, did I say, voices… Oh my! I think everyone should see this!

Here are some quotes from audience and cast:
Wow! I just wanted to pass along that people were "blown away" by our performance and people thought they were seeing a show on Broadway. (no, really someone said that) I am proud of us! It's an honor to work with you guys. Tim A.
"I saw it in Boston and you guys blew that out of the water!"
"This is the best performance I've ever seen come out of Pistarckle!"
"I'm coming back to see it again!"
"I am so proud to be a part of this. We won't disappoint you!" Kate R.
So, buckle down, make plans, round up some ticket money and enjoy a fine convergence of artistic talent. It's sure to impress. It's good for the soul. Jesus is cool!!
