Wilmington United Methodist Church invites you to a special event at the historic Murphy Theatre on Sunday, April 2nd at 3:00pm for a “Jesus Christ Superstar” Sing-a-long.
Come and enjoy an audience participation showing of the musical that originally opened on Broadway in 1971, then was released to movie theaters in 1973 as a major motion picture.
We are gathering on Palm Sunday, which is a day of mixed emotions. Many worship services begin with the celebration and excitement of the Parade of the Palms. The music is upbeat and exciting. As the service continues, we move into a different time when we experience the crowd that welcomed Jesus into Jerusalem turn into the same crowd that began shouting for his crucifixion on the cross.
“Jesus Christ Superstar” Sing-a-long joins us together as an audience, participating in the excitement of his triumphant entry into Jerusalem, moving toward the crucifixion of Jesus on the cross. We will be singing familiar music and using some simple props as we watch the movie. We want to invite you to join us for this fun, spirit-filled journey as we prepare to remember the death and celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ in the coming week.
Feel free to wear your favorite tie-dyed shirt and 70’s type clothing. After the movie, we will have an opportunity to fellowship at an after party featuring “The Carpenters” playing classic rock at Charlie’s, which is connected to The Murphy Theatre. This will be a great opportunity to make new friends and socialize with your neighbors as we begin our Holy Week journey together.
