GODSPELL is a soft rock musical adaptation of the Gospel of Matthew by Stephen Schwartz (Wicked) and John-Michael Tebelak. GODSPELL requires a diverse ensemble of 5 men and 5 women. All roles are featured. Each actor must bring his or her individual personality traits to the character. Ability to sing harmony “one on a part” and improvise are a must! Age ranges are preferably from late teens to late twenties (but not confined to that range). All ethnicities are encouraged to audition. All roles are open. The show is physically active, so the cast must have energy, vitality and freedom of movement. Special abilities (playing musical instruments, juggling, etc.) are encouraged. A current resume and headshot would be helpful, but it not required.

Please prepare an up tempo song (not from GODSPELL), no more than 32 bars, in the correct key for your voice and appropriate for the style of the show. An accompanist will be provided (no acappella singing). Please note: you may be asked to sing from the score at the audition. No prepared monologue is required.
Callbacks, if needed, will be at the director’s discretion.
Conflicts not listed at time of audition may not be honored.

The director is looking for talent that can be shaped. Experience helps, but is not required.
