In celebration of the 40th anniversary of the iconic film from Universal Pictures, "Jesus Christ Superstar," Agape International Spiritual Center‚Äôs Youth and Family Ministry presents a one night-only presentation of the musical, which stars Ted Neely and Carl Anderson, at six Laemmle Theatres throughout the Los Angeles area.
The fundraiser screenings, which benefit Agape‚Äôs Carl Anderson Scholarship Fund, will be held Thursday, Mar. 28, 2013, at 7:30 p.m., simultaneously in Laemmle theatres in Santa Monica, West Los Angeles, Pasadena, North Hollywood, Encino and Claremont. Tickets available at www.agapelive.com.
"Carl Anderson was a gifted actor/singer/dancer whose personal passion was to inspire youth in self-expression through the arts. Our scholarship fund is a continuation of his work encouraging students in education, creative freedom and self-actualization," said Rev. Dr. Michael Beckwith, Agape founder and spiritual director.
Founded in 2004, Agape‚Äôs Carl Anderson Scholarship Fund was established originally to support Agape students pursuing their dreams in the arts including acting, singing, dancing, composing, visual arts and writing. The nonprofit now assists students seeking higher education in any field of study.
