GODSPELL

Show dates March 12 - 29

Show Summary: Based on the Gospel according to Matthew, Godspell is the first musical theatre offering from composer Stephen Schwartz who went on to write such well-known hits as Wicked, Pippin, and Children of Eden. The show features a comedic troupe of eccentric players who team up with Jesus to teach his lessons in a new age through parables, games, and tomfoolery.

Godspell also features the international hit, “Day by Day”, as well as an eclectic blend of songs ranging from pop to vaudeville, as Jesus’ life is played out onstage. Even after the haunting crucifixion, Jesus’ message of kindness, tolerance and love lives vibrantly on.

CASTING for GODSPELL

Characters

 

JESUS – Male identifying, any ethnic or racial identity, Tenor High energy, charismatic, charming, funny, gentle but with strength. He is the sort of person others instinctively follow.

JOHN THE BAPTIST/JUDAS – Male identifying, any ethnic or racial identity, Baritone He has attributes of both Biblical figures: He is both Jesus' lieutenant and most ardent disciple and the doubter who begins to question and rebel. Like Jesus, he is also charismatic, but in more of an overt revolutionary way.

ACTOR 1  – Male identifying, any ethnic or racial identity, Tenor Not the brightest in the bunch, he is a little slow on the uptake. But there is a great sweetness and innocence about him.

ACTOR 2  – Male identifying, any ethnic or racial identity, Baritone The comedian, the class clown. The guy who can do a hundred voices and imitations.

ACTOR 3  - Female identifying, any ethnic or racial identity, Alto The shy one. Sometimes a little slow to get things, but when she does, she commits all the way.

ACTOR 4 - Female identifying, any ethnic or racial identity, Mezz-Soprano The class clown. Goofy and a cut-up.

ACTOR 5 - Male identifying, any ethnic or racial identity, Tenor Very high energy. Impish and playful.

ACTOR 6 - Female identifying, any ethnic or racial identity, Mezzo-Soprano A bit of a tomboy, but basically open and sweet.

ACTOR 7 - Female identifying, any ethnic or racial identity, Soprano The confident one, the show-off. The first one to volunteer, sometimes she jumps in before she really understands what's going on. ACTOR 8 - Female identifying, any ethnic or racial identity, Alto Sassy and slightly cynical.
