SYRACUSE -- The man known as "Producer Bill" on WSYR's The Jim Reith Show will be getting into the limelight this weekend -- with a principle role in Jesus Christ Superstar tonight and tomorrow at the Onondaga County Civic Center's Crouse-Hinds Theater.
Bill Ali tells CNYRadio.com he's playing the part of the apostle Simon. He says this is the Salt City Center for the Performing Arts 30th anniversary in staging the show, and their first time taking it to the Crouse-Hinds Theater.
Performances are at 8pm both nights. Tickets are available for $20, $25, $30, $35 and $40, available through Ticketmaster or at the box office. The Post-Standard's Joan Vadeboncoeur ran a brief blurb on the production recently. No mentions of Bill in the article, but Reith has been mentioning it on his show's Twitter feed.
