10 roles

Anna MariaFemale18-56 y.o.All ethnicities

(Alto): A bit of a tomboy, but basically open and sweet. Perhaps the youngest of the group. She is the first of the group to commit to following Jesus in the song "Day by Day."

CelisseFemale18-56 y.o.All ethnicities

(Mezzo-Soprano): The female equivalent of the class clown. Goofy and a cut-up. In the 2012 Broadway revival, she played several instruments, including conga, ukulele, and guitar. She sings "Learn Your Lessons Well."

GeorgeMale18-56 y.o.All ethnicities

(Tenor): The comedian, the class clown. The guy who can do a hundred voices and imitations. He sings "Light of the World."

JesusMale18-56 y.o.All ethnicities

(Tenor): Must be the most charismatic individual in the cast. High energy, charming, funny, gentle but with strength. He is the sort of person others instinctively follow.

John the Baptist/JudasMale18-56 y.o.All ethnicities

(Baritone): He has attributes of both Biblical figures: He is both Jesus' lieutenant and most ardent disciple and the doubter who begins to question and rebel. He is the most "serious" and intellectual of the group, though as with all the actors, he must still possess a good sense of physical comedy. He sings "Prepare Ye," "All For the Best," and "On the Willows."

LindsayFemale18-56 y.o.All ethnicities

(Soprano): The confident one, the show-off. The first one to volunteer, sometimes she jumps in before she really understands what's going on. She sings "Bless the Lord."

MorganFemale18-56 y.o.All ethnicities

(Alto): Sassy and slightly cynical, the most urban of the group. Also the "sexy" one, but her sexiness contains a large element of put-on, in the manner of Mae West or Madonna. She sings "Turn Back, O Man."

NickMale18-56 y.o.All ethnicities

(Tenor): Very high energy. Impish and playful. In the original, he played several musical instruments, including a concertina, recorder, and guitar. He sings "We Beseech Thee."

TellyMale18-56 y.o.All ethnicities

(Tenor): Not the brightest in the bunch, he is a little slow on the uptake. But there is a great sweetness and innocence about him. Because he sings "All Good Gifts" he must be a very good singer.

UzoFemale18-56 y.o.All ethnicities

(Alto): The shy one. Sometimes a little slow to get things, but when she does, she commits all the way. Has an "earth mother" kind of warmth to her. She sings "By My Side."
