Auditions: GODSPELL

AUDITION – Saturday, November 20, 2021 at 11:30 a.m @ AMELIA MUSICAL PLAYHOUSE

Show dates: Mar 31, April 1–3 & April 7–10, 2022

Godspell is a musical by Stephen Schwartz and a book by John-Michael Tebelak, composed of various musical parables from The Gospel According to Matthew. Jesus Christ recruits a group of followers and teaches them various lessons through song and dance. Toward the end of the second act, the show begins to follow a more linear narrative as Jesus is betrayed by Judas and eventually crucified. 

This is an ensemble show, comprised of ten actors, all of whom are on stage nearly the entire duration of the show.

Roles include: 

  • Jesus (male) – tenor
  • John the Baptist /Judas (male) – baritone
  • Lamar (male) – tenor
  • Herb (male) – baritone
  • Jeffrey (male) – tenor
  • Robin (female) – alto
  • Gilmer (female) – mezzo
  • Joanne (female) – soprano
  • Sonia (female) – alto
  • Peggy (female) – mezzo

Actors MUST BE 18 years old, and will be asked to present a two minute monologue (or read from supplied text) and sing 16–18 bars of a song of your own choice. An accompanist will be available, please provide your own sheet music, or you can sing along to your own instrumental recorded track (MP3 file or CD).

There will be roles for actors, both male and female, and the age range of actors cast will depend on who turns out for the audition. 

If you would like to audition but cannot make it on November 20, please feel free to contact director Bill Ivins at bill@ivinsink.com to schedule a private audition, or submit a video.
