Rising Stars Auditions: Godspell Jr.

The Woodland Opera House Education Program's Rising Stars Series Presents: 

Auditions for Godspell Jr.

Music and New Lyrics by Stephen Schwartz

Saturday, June 4th 2022

Directed and Choreographed by Andrea St. Clair, Education Director

Music Director: Lori Jarvey

Performers must attend both the dance and vocal audition.

Dance Audition: Saturday June 4th from 10:00 to 11:30 am 

What to prepare: Come dressed to dance! Dance styles in the show range from jazz, hip-hop, and contemporary. Please wear proper dance shoes. 

Vocal Auditions: Saturday June 4th in half-hour time slots at either 12:00 pm, 12:30 pm, or 1:00 pm (more to be added based on demand.) Sign-up via the appointment slots below. More will be added based on demand. Email [email protected] if you have questions.  

What to prepare: A pop/rock/folk musical theatre song that is 16-32 bars (roughly 1:30 in length) that shows vocal range and storytelling. This show is predominately sung, so we will be looking for young performers that can tell a good story through song and movement. This Junior version is based on the 2012 Broadway Revival, so please use that version as a reference. 

What else to bring: A list of conflicts for all rehearsals.  While minimal conflicts are allowed, they may affect casting.  Please keep conflicts minimal out of respect for all involved. 

Callbacks by Invitation: June 5th at 1:00 pm

Auditions and Callbacks will be held at the Woodland Opera House Theatre and Dance Annex, 520 Court Street, Woodland. 

Rehearsals:  Rehearsals start June 20th at 6:30 pm.  All rehearsals will be Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday, 6:30 to 9:00 pm at the Woodland Opera House Theatre and Dance Annex. 

Performances: August 13th through 27th, 2022.  Saturdays at 2 pm, Sundays at 7 pm 

Conflicts after August 1st are not allowed.

Junior Theatre Festival: Those cast will have the honor to represent the Woodland Opera House at the 2023 Junior Theatre Festival held in Sacramento the weekend of February 17-19, 2023.  Additional rehearsals will be held one day a week in Dec/Jan/Feb. These rehearsals will be determined based on cast availability and should not be longer than 90 minutes. JTF Tuition is included in this Rising Stars package. There is the possibility of minimal additional cost for this commitment (not to exceed $50 per student.) All other costs covered by fundraising.  If cast, please keep this time open.  Information regarding the Junior Theatre Festival can be found by visiting  https://juniortheaterfestival.com/what-we-do/

Rising Stars Tuition: If cast, a tuition amount of $225 will be due by the first rehearsal. (Payment plans can be worked out by emailing [email protected] but must be paid in full by July 15th, 2022.) 

What your tuition includes: All instruction, actors script, cast t-shirt, full production materials,  a costume fee (costumes owned by the WOH unless asked to provide pieces), and JTF Tuition. 

What your tuition does not include: tickets to the show, optional add-on purchases. 

 

Casting: 

All roles are open to any gender. 

Jesus

Jesus is a natural-born teacher. This performer is a good singer and is comfortable taking on a leadership position without being bossy or judgmental. Jesus experiences a full array of emotions during the show, so a solid actor who can convincingly perform this range is needed.

Vocal range top: G5, Vocal range bottom: D4

Judas/John the Baptist

One performer plays both of these roles, which is quite a challenge. This actor must be charismatic in the opening, headstrong and comical in the middle of the show, and eventually turn on Jesus at the end. All of this while being a great singer, too. This role must be played by a strong singer/storyteller.

Vocal range top: G5, Vocal range bottom: C4

Day By Day 

This singer must have good vocal range and vocal control to lead the song from beginning to end.

Vocal range top: A4, Vocal range bottom: C4

Learn Your Lessons Well Solo 1

This song requires a great enunciator and engaging storyteller. It is less about the melody and more about the lyrics. 

Vocal range top: C5, Vocal range bottom: G3

Learn Your Lessons Well Solo 2

This song requires a great enunciator and engaging storyteller. It is less about the melody and more about the lyrics. 

Vocal range top: C5, Vocal range bottom: G3

 

O, Bless The Lord, My Soul

Pull out your big guns for this song. This song requires a great musician with both vocal control and power.

Vocal range top: E5, Vocal range bottom: B3

 

All Good Gifts

This heartfelt ballad sounds best when sung by someone who not only has a beautiful voice, but also can express honest, simple emotions while they are singing.

Vocal range top: F#5, Vocal range bottom: B3

We Beseech Thee

This high-energy number can almost be spoken if you don't have a great voice. It's the perfect song for the fun-loving class clown who enjoys performing but might not hit every note. Add a slight southern accent to liven the number up even more.

Vocal range top: D5, Vocal range bottom: D4

Light Of The World

Here's another song that can be spoken in rhythm. Need fearless performers who are not afraid to interact with the audience.

Vocal range top: G4, Vocal range bottom: Bb3

Beautiful City

Needs a singer who can bring everyone together and deliver the message of the show in this beautiful, sincere song.

Vocal range top: C5, Vocal range bottom: Bb3

Narrators

There are a whole multitude of Narrators throughout the show. Need performers with loud, clear voices who are comfortable being in front of an audience and telling a story.

Ensemble

These cast members are the heart of Godspell JR. They will enact all of the parables and eventually become a community led by Jesus. Need actors and singers of all types who are willing to try anything and enjoy playing.
