The global phenomenon that has wowed audiences for over 40 years comes to Buena Park! Inspired by the hippie culture of California in the late 60s, this 1970s rock opera, featuring iconic music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Tim Rice, is loosely based on the Gospels’ accounts of the last week of Jesus’ life. It weaves together contemporary attitudes and sensibilities with a timeless story, focusing on the political and interpersonal struggles between Judas and Jesus. The production is a celebration of a variety of musical styles, from rock and folk to funk and gospel; it’s a must-see this summer!

Enjoy an evening of dynamic theatre in The Plaza, our beautiful and intimate outdoor venue. Beer, wine, soft drinks and light refreshments will be available for purchase. For additional information, please visit or call the Buena Park Community Center at (714) 562-3860.
