JUST weeks after the sparkling shoes and feather head-dresses from Copacabana have been packed away, the Ipswich Operatic and Dramatic Society is already busy working on its next production.

Jesus Christ Superstar is yet another East Anglian amateur premiere for the group. With lyrics and music by the famed duo of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber, it promises to be a great success.

The production will take place at the Ipswich Regent from April 9 to 12.

The popular musical tells the story of the last seven days of Jesus's life on earth. From Christ's entry into Jerusalem to Good Friday, all is seen through the eyes of his betrayer, Judas Iscariot.

Shaun Whymark, publicity officer for the IODS, said: "Once again we are looking forward to bringing this fantastic show to Ipswich. It is another premiere for the society and I'm sure it will be a great success."

With a musical score including both fierce rock and poignant ballads, this show will appeal to everyone and offers an alternative look at the Son of God.
