GODSPELL (2012 Revival Version)
Jesus – Charismatic, charming, funny, gentle but with strength. Tenor
John the Baptist/Judas – Jesus’ lieutenant and most ardent disciple and the doubter who begins to question and rebel. Charismatic, but in more of an overt revolutionary way. He is the most “serious” and intellectual of the group, but must also possess a good sense of physical comedy. Baritone
Nick – Very high energy. Impish and playful. Tenor
Telly – Not the brightest in the bunch, he is a little slow on the uptake, but there is a great sweetness and innocence about him. He sings “All Good Gifts.” Tenor
George – The comedian, the class clown. The guy who can do a hundred voices and imitations. Tenor/Baritone
Anna Maria – A bit of a tomboy, but basically open and sweet. She is the first of the group to commit to following Jesus in the song “Day by Day.” Mezzo
Uzo – The shy one with an “earth mother” kind of warmth to her. Alto
Morgan – Sassy and slightly cynical and can turn on a sexiness in the manner of Mae West or Madonna. Soprano
Celisse – The female equivalent of the class clown. Goofy and a cut-up. Playing string instrument (ukulele) a plus. Mezzo
Lindsay – The confident one, the show-off. The first one to volunteer, sometimes she jumps in beforeshe really understands what’s going on. Soprano
Virtual callbacks will be on 13 June 2020.
