GRAMMAR school girls are staging one of their most ambitious projects to date as an all-female cast grapple with Jesus Christ Superstar.

The performance by Townley Grammar School students opened on Tuesday and closes tomorrow.

The production includes a chorus of 30 and a full rock band as well as a dramatic set, with year-11 student Lydia Breden-Thorpe taking the leading role.

She said: "Playing the part of Jesus requires me to combine my acting and singing talents. It's very much a team production."

Director of music at the school, Marcus Suranyi, had the task of organising the rock orchestra and choir in the much-loved version of the Passion of Christ by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice.
