The Theater League of Clifton will hold auditions for its production of “Jesus Christ Superstar” on April 27 and 28, with call backs on April 29. The start time for all three dates will be 7 p.m., and the auditions will be held at Living Hope Presbyterian Church, 303 Maplewood Avenue, corner of Emerson Street, in Clifton (adjacent to Valley Road).
Lisa Dascoli of Little Falls, who will direct the show, said those auditioning should prepare to sing a 1970s-era rock song (not a Broadway musical selection) and bring sheet music. The show will be staged much like a rock concert.
It’s suggested that those auditioning should be age 17 and older. Dascoli said she’s hoping to cast multi-cultural, multi-age performers to recreate the look of a first-century Middle East community.
Lead roles to be cast include Jesus, Judas, Peter, Simon, Mary Magdalene, King Herod, Pontius Pilate, Caiaphas, the High Priests and Annias. Casting also will include ensemble parts.
Clifton residents Mark Peterson and John Traier, members of the executive board of the Theater League of Clifton, will serve as the show’s producers.
Rehearsals are slated for Wednesday and Thursday nights and Saturday mornings. The show will be held June 4, 5, 11, and 12 and performed outdoors at Clifton’s Weasel Brook Park, 1 Westervelt Place (adjacent to Paulson Avenue).
