Sky Arts has unveiled this week's TV listings for its dedicated Freeview channel for all things creative.

We've combed the list to find what might be relevant for theatre fans out there, with shows from the likes of Michael Ball, Andrew Lloyd Webber and documentaries about the history of theatre.

The channel is showing a lot of love for the US's stage version of Jesus Christ Superstar, which can be seen twice this week.

The channel has a tendency to show full productions of musicals – over Christmas it delivered recordings Miss Saigon, Les Misérables, Billy Elliot and more. You can see our picks for this week below.
