There is a superstar headed for Kinston, and his name is Jesus Christ.
Clay Raines, drama teacher at Kinston High School, is directing Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “Jesus Christ Superstar.”
The show will go on March 25-27 at Lenoir Community College.
“I told myself when I was 11 years old that if I could play any part it would be Jesus, and I’ve had it [the play] memorized ever since then,” Raines said.
In addition to directing “Jesus Christ Superstar,” Raines will finally fulfill his dream of playing the role of Jesus. He has been at KHS for five years and in that time he has either been in, directed, or taken part in 32 performances.
Joining him in performing is a phenomenal cast he hand-picked after holding auditions in early January. He chose those who had experience and whose voices fit the role.
