This November, Moorhead High School theater presents the musical theater classic “Jesus Christ Superstar.”
Based on a concept album written more than 40 years ago by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, “Jesus Christ Superstar” tells the story of the final seven days in the life of Jesus Christ through the troubled eyes of Judas Iscariot. The show is a musical theater staple, and features memorable songs such as “I Don’t Know How to Love Him,” “Everything’s Alright” and “Hosanna.”
Moorhead High’s production is directed by Rebecca Meyer-Larson. “I am excited to bring this classic-rock opera to the Moorhead High stage and thrilled to present with a modern political edge,” Meyer-Larson said. “The electrifying score has energized rehearsals and the culturally significant story has provided rich educational opportunities for our artists.”
“Jesus Christ Superstar” will be performed at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 15-17, 22-24, 29-30 at Moorhead High School. Tickets are $10 for adults and $6 for students and can be purchased beginning Nov. 1 by calling the Moorhead High Activities Office at 218-284-2345 or online at www.moorheadschools.org/tix.

Moorhead School Board members and district administrators are meeting today at Rustic Oaks to discuss strategic priorities for the district based on results of the recent community engagement initiative.
The community engagement initiative resulted in recommendations under five major themes of 21st century schools, school and community interaction, facilities, equitable educational opportunities and mental health/character development.

Approximately 1,000 district stakeholders provided input during Moorhead Area Public Schools’ recent Community Engagement Initiative, said consultant Greg Vandal during the report to the School Board on June 24.
Vandal explained that the steering committee and core planning team members held community conversations with several hundred stakeholders, about 900 residents and employees responded to surveys, and several employee focus groups were conducted all to provide input into the engagement process. The action plans that emerge from this process will provide a framework for long-range planning for the district.
The five major themes developed and discussed through the community conversations and surveys were what should a 21st century school look like, how best should school and community interact, what should district facilities look like, what does equitable educational opportunities mean, and what should the district be doing about any mental health/character development needs. Vandal encouraged the board members to consider these broad categories as the district develops programs. Read more.
