Superstar (TBC) – Andrew Lloyd Webber starts a nationwide search on ITV1 for the next musical superstar. The prize on offer is a unique opportunity to play the title role in new arena tour of Jesus Christ Superstar across the UK, starting at London’s O2 arena. And the final decision will be in the hands of the British public
Superstar will be television’s first ‘school of rock’, helping talented singers achieve their potential. Andrew Lloyd Webber hopes the British public will help him discover an extraordinary new voice to fill the country’s largest arenas.
Auditions will take place across the country during February-March in London, Dublin, Belfast, Manchester, Glasgow and Cardiff. The UK’s most promising new talent will perform on stage in the hope of impressing the casting panel for a place in the final live shows.
The casting team will whittle down the numbers for the live shows featuring those they believe have potential to become a superstar.
Lloyd Webber will be joined by a carefully selected panel of judges to help him in his search. But ultimately it will be up to the British public to decide who they want to be his Superstar and play Jesus.
