Director Rebecca Vega and AD Kim Cotter will be holding auditions for SCCT’s YT production of GODSPELL on Tuesday, Mar. 19 at 6:30 PM and Thursday, Mar. 21 at 6:30 PM.
ABOUT THE SHOW:
A small group of people help Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a wide variety of games, storytelling techniques and a hefty dose of comic timing. An eclectic blend of songs, ranging in style from pop to vaudeville, is employed as the story of Jesus’ life dances across the stage. Dissolving hauntingly into the Last Supper and the Crucifixion, Jesus’ messages of kindness, tolerance and love come vibrantly to life.
We recommend that you listen to the soundtrack on YouTube:
We suggest that you choose one of the songs from the soundtrack for your audition. We will have the karaoke versions on hand, and you can practice with them here:

Friday, May 10 – 7:00 PM
Saturday, May 11 – 7:00 PM
Sunday, May 12 – 2:00 PM
Roles available include 10 leads and an ensemble of middle and high school age actors. There will also be a children’s choir of elementary school age actors. Note – other than Jesus and John/Judas the rest of the characters’ names will change to the actors’ first names. This is just to give a general character description.
JESUS: The most charismatic individual in the cast. High energy, funny, charming, gentle. The type others instinctively follow.
JOHN THE BAPTIST/JUDAS: A dual role. Also charismatic, serious and intellectual and (as Judas) revolutionary.
NICK: Very high energy! Impish and playful, able to play instruments would be a plus (concertina, recorder, guitar) but not absolutely necessary.
TELLY: Not the brightest in the bunch, he is a little slow on the uptake. Must be a good singer. (He sings the solo on “All Good Gifts.”
GEORGE: Comedian/class clown type. Able to do voices.
ANNA MARIA: A bit of a tomboy, sweet. She is the first to commit to follow Jesus and sings the solo in “Day by Day.”
LINDSAY: Confident and show-offy. The first to volunteer, even before she understands what’s going on.
UZO: A shy girl. A little slow to get things, but when she does she commits all the way. Warm personality.
MORGAN: Sassy, cynical, streetwise. Also the “sexy” one — like Mae West or Madonna.
CELISSE: Female equivalent of the class clown. Goofy and a cut-up. Able to play instruments would be a plus (conga or bongos, ukulele, guitar) but not absolutely necessary.
If you are interested in getting involved with the show but do not want to appear onstage, there are many areas in which you can help, including backstage, technical work, costuming, and set construction.
