ITV1 have released a trailer for Andrew Lloyd Webber’s nationwide search for the next musical Superstar.
After the success of Webber‘s BBC talent searches for the West End productions of The Sound of Music, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat, Oliver! and The Wizard of Oz, he’s now switched to ITV with the prize on offer of a unique opportunity to play the title role in new arena tour of Jesus Christ Superstar across the UK, starting at London’s O2 arena. And the final decision will be in the hands of the British public
Andrew Lloyd Webber says: “Presenting a new, 2012 version of Jesus Christ Superstar for arenas is truly exciting. Some of the best performances of this show have been in rock venues and I’m thrilled to see the show return to its roots. ITV is providing the perfect platform for us to find a new, British Superstar.”
“It is the public who lead the casting process and they’ve got it absolutely right four times already. It’s been wonderful to see the careers of so many of the contestants blossom, so it will be especially fascinating to see who the public chooses as their Superstar!” says Andrew Lloyd Webber.
