Coming Soon! Jesus Christ Superstar!

Jesus Christ Superstar is a rock opera with music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Tim Rice. The story is loosely based on the Gospels’ account of the Passion Story and serves as an interpretation of Jesus, his Disciples, and others they meet along their journey to Jerusalem.

The Happy Ending Lyric Players look forward to bringing this super story to First Baptist Church of Greater Cleveland! We look forward to our congregation joining us either on stage or in the pews for this amazing production.

Auditions: December 2023

Show Dates: March 2024

Our History

In 1974 James Schrader was looking for a way to bring the performing arts to First Baptist Church of Greater Cleveland. Teamed with a congregation of passionate performers and a budget of a few dollars, he prepared to put on his first show. A group of this kind needed a name and they needed help. Shrader found the name within the need and decided to find a name that would fit into the acronym H.E.L.P. and thus the Happy Ending Lyric Players were born!

Since that time, we’ve grown to be a highly respected community theatre both for the quality of our productions as well as the atmosphere we have created for our performers.
