Youth Auditions - Godspell

   

Ten West’s Teen Production is Godspell!

Auditions: May 1-2, 5-9 p.m.

Godspell was the first major musical theatre offering from three-time Grammy and Academy Award winner, Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin, Children of Eden); and it took the world by storm. Led by the international hit, “Day by Day,” Godspell features a parade of beloved songs, including “Prepare Ye the Way of the Lord,” “Learn Your Lessons Well,” “All for the Best,” “All Good Gifts,” “Turn Back, O Man” and “By My Side.”

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.

In this updated version, Schwartz’s long-loved score is given a fresh edge, new lyrics, and an updated look.

Actors age 13-18 can audition for this production. The show will rehearse three days a week from June 5-July 26. Schedule will be based on actors’ and director’s availability. Auditions are May 1-2 from 5-9pm. Please prepare a 30 second monologue and two musical selections that reflect your range, vocally and emotionally. This show features minimal dancing, but be prepared to move during auditions.
