As part of their sesquicentenary celebrations, Crescent College in Limerick staged an elaborate production of Jesus Christ Superstar for four nights, from 3-6 December. Directed by Richie Ryan, whose son Conor played the part of Judas, the show was a huge success and played to sell-out audiences every night. Headmaster Nick Cuddihy said it was a great achievement for all involved: “We had a cast of one hundred and fifty in the one hundred and fiftieth year of the school and what we saw and heard was a profound message for the times we’re in”. The musical director was Marie Keary Scanlon and the choreographer was Susan Ryan. The performance starred Cian Scanlon as Jesus, Caoimhe Maguire as Mary Magdalene, and Kevin Prendergast as King Herod.
