I grew up thinking that everyone loved Jesus Christ Superstar, just like my parents did. I never knew there was such a big controversy surrounding the musical. It seems like there is still quite a difference of opinion about the show, even 40 years later. People either love it or hate it, it seems.
To help satisfy my curiosity, and to help me understand how divided people really are about it, please take 5 seconds out of your busy day and answer this simple anonymous poll question:
Now, whatever your answer to the poll question, you may want to come see the “best community theater in Florida” put on this musical during the final three weekends in March 2013. You can buy your tickets online at http://www.cocoavillageplayhouse.com/ or you can phone the box office at 321-636-5050.
I finally sat down and created an AIDA page on leucht.com containing photos that I took during the production along with links to photos taken by others along with a couple of videos that were produced for marketing purposes.
Enjoy. And if any cast members or crew has any more photos from the production that they’d like to share with the masses, feel free to contact me via http://www.leucht.com/email/ and I’ll be happy to add more links.
Florida Today put together a nice little narrated photo slideshow showing some scenes from AIDA with the company singing the music that is playing in the background. Check out the video below. Just click on the play button to watch it.

P.S. I’m in the show … I’m playing the bad guy’s (Zoser’s) evil sidekick. It’s an unnamed part without any actual lines, but it’s still a very fun part. I’m also playing a slave in a couple of the slave camp scenes.
This morning the Florida Today newspaper printed a nice little AIDA teaser on the front page. They actually used the word “blockbuster”! I can’t wait to see the story tomorrow morning in the TGIF section of the paper. It should be good.
AIDA opens tomorrow night, Friday April 3rd. There are still some tickets left for opening night and right now AIDA is playing through April 19th, although that could get extended if the rest of the performances sell out. For tickets or for more information, check out the Historic Cocoa Village Playhouse website.
The shows at the Cocoa Village Playhouse are always awesome, but Peter Pan is going to be extra special since they are actually flying numerous cast members through the air in the show. This is as close to Broadway as you’ll see in community theatre, I think. (full disclosure: I am not paid by CVP, but I do try to help them out by building sets when I am able.)
Florida Today put together a very nice little video showing the Peter Pan kids learning to fly. Check out the video below. Just click on the play button to watch it.
Just call 321-636-5050 for CVP tickets or for more information.
Thanks for visiting, Kurt & Sam Leucht Titusville, FL
