New Mill MVC's newest SUPERSTAR - EMIDIO

An email dropped out of cyberspace last night. Emidio wrote:

"Should have mentioned this, Tuesday.
   Tickets went on sale from 1st November for a Huddersfield Light Opera Company production of Jesus Christ Superstar, six evening performances and an extra Saturday matinee.  
   I auditioned for Caiaphas and got the part. Doesn’t interfere with choir, at all, rehearsals are Mondays. Time enough to get on top of the part, I hope. 
   Performances are at the Lawrence Batley Theatre, 20-25th April 2020."

We first heard of this at the rugby club lunch 13 of us attended last Saturday. We performed 3-4 numbers and were appreciated. The game went well with a convincing win for Lockwood Park. No rain and the Osset Blonde was excellent.

Back to Caiaphas. Role size is interesting - large would be more accurate, but I guess Emidio will be pleased that he's not expected to dance. 
  Emidio, how do you feel about being an outspoken murderer?
