On Easter Sunday, the men will wear their best Easter bonnets and stilettos and the children will sing "What's the Buzz?" at Middle Collegiate Church, a place known for art and artists, as the church shares selections from JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR on Sunday, April 21 at 9:30 and 11:45 am.
Favorites like "Everything's Alright," and "I Don't Know How to Love Him" will be performed. Nationally recognized speaker and senior minister, Rev. Dr. Jacqui Lewis will offer a powerful Easter homily.
Mary is played by three people: Riqi Velez, Olive Demetrius, and Aly Palmer (of the rock band BETTY). Mary is cast both as a man and also as African-American women. Jesus is portrayed by Michael Quattrone, Sophia Ramos (PARTY PEOPLE) plays Judas, and Jonathan Lucas is Caiaphas. Rod Rodgers Dance, The Jerriese Johnson Gospel Choir, The Middle Church Choir, The Village Chorus for Children and Youth, and The Middle Church Band are also featured. The musical director is Dionne McClain-Freeney (THIS ONE GIRL'S STORY).
Doors open at 9:15 am for the 9:30 am worship.
