Jesus Christ Superstar

Actress Erin Barry will play Simon in the Talent Time Players production of “Jesus Christ Superstar,” which opens Thursday night at Bloomfield Middle School. The show will run six nights, Thurs. through Sat. Aug. 5-7 and 12-14.

The Talent Time Players are affiliated with the Charles Seller Foundation, a Bloomfield institution created in 1950 to help a young man named Charles Seller, who lost his leg after being struck by a train. After the accident, Seller’s family and friends put on a variety show to raise money for his medical expenses. The basic idea stuck, but the shows got more elaborate. A new beneficiary is selected each year.
This year, the show’s proceeds will go to help David Cobel, 5, of Maplewood, who has survived a rare brain malignancy.

Gabe Martinez will star as Jesus in this year’s production. Azudi Onyejekwe is Judas; Megan Macphee is Mary and Ralph Turano is Pilate.
All performances start at 8 pm at the Middle School at 60 Huck Road. Tickets are $8 and $10.
