O’Neill High School presents rock opera

Students at O’Neill High School will perform the musical Jesus Christ Superstar under the direction of Philipstown’s Christine Bokhour (who played Judas in the Philipstown Depot Theatre’s production last fall) on March 11, 12 and 13 at the school’s auditorium in Highland Falls.

The story is loosely based on Gospel accounts of the last week in the life of Jesus from the view of Christ’s betrayer, Judas Iscariot. The O’Neill version will include a six-piece rock band directed by Garrison’s Paul Heckert and featuring percussion by Thomas Cunane. O’Neill students from Garrison participating in the production include cast member Alexandra Angelopoulos, trumpet player Alex Mancuso and lighting crew member Hudson Heckert.

Shows are at 7 p.m. on Friday, March 11, and Saturday, March 12, and 3 p.m. on Sunday, March 13. Tickets at the door are $10 for adults, $5 for students and seniors.
