It opens at the Harbourfront Theatre with a cast that includes our colleague Steve Bruce as Jesus. Musician Chris Smith plays Judas, with about 40 other people making up the cast and crew. It's brought to you by Fandango Musical Players, a Summerside community group. Karen Mair spoke with the show's director Shirley Anne Cameron.  (Photos courtesy of Island Live)
