In 1976, California Youth Theatre staged a magnificent production of Jesus Christ Superstar at the Santa Barbara County Bowl. The production starred original motion picture stars Ted Neeley, Carl Anderson and Yvonne Elliman in what was an unforgettable series of performances under the stars.
Now, 30 years later, Ted Neeley and Yvonne Elliman along with other members of the youth theatre family are coming together once more, joined by Barry Dennen, Clint Holmes, Jack Black and a full company of actors, singers, and musicians, to perform in this special concert event, benefiting Youtheatre America, and the Ricardo Montalban Foundation.
Youtheatre America, under the direction of Jack Nakano, has been established to help develop the “Audiences of the Future”, by encouraging creative skills and artisitic expression in youth ages 12 to 21, while fostering a high sense of accomplishment and self esteem, thereby developing a critical, selective and demanding Citizen Audience of the Future.
The Ricardo Montalban Foundation, under the direction of Jerry Velasco, was established in 1970 by its well-known star namesake of numerous film and television shows, to improve the image of Latinos throughout the Entertainment Industry, to promote employment in front and behind the camera, and to provide education opportunies for Hispanics in the performing arts.
Produced by special arrangement with The Really Useful Group Ltd and through the courtesy and permision of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber, this performance will be a once in a lifetime event, never to be repeated.
