The Players Club Theater of Swarthmore is holding auditions for male singers to appear in their upcoming production of Jesus Christ Superstar, the extraordinary hit musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice. Superstar first opened in London in 1969, and then New York in the early 1970’s, and has since been performed throughout the world in many languages. It’s a very strong, male influenced, cast of singers that form the foundation of this superb musical, and demands vocalists in all the male ranges. Director Bohdan Senkow said, “Because the show’s story is done entirely to music; those auditioning do not necessarily need to have had a great deal of acting experience; but will enjoy the challenge of being a part of a tremendous musical production.”
This highly moving story will be set in its traditional time and locale of Jerusalem; as Christ, long recognized as a truly historic figure, returns to the region as a preacher and healer. The production looks at Christ as a man, facing the wrath of the governing aristocracy and religious leaders, who begin fearing that this preacher and healer of the common people, will undermine their stringent iron grip on the nation.
Those men interested in auditioning, are asked to contact the director Bohdan Senkow at 610-742-4136 or at firstname.lastname@example.org. Jesus Christ Superstar will be performed for ten performances over three weekends from April 20 to May 5, at the 300-seat Players Club Theater, in Swarthmore, Pa. Rehearsals are in the evening on Sundays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays beginning at 7:00PM. The Players Club welcomes people of all multi-cultural diversities.
