Conceived and originally directed by John Michael Tebelak (from Berea, Ohio and a Clague Playhouse Alum), with music and new lyrics by Stephen Schwartz, Godspell is one of the biggest off-Broadway and Broadway successes of all time. Based on the Gospel According to St. Matthew, and featuring a sparkling score by Schwartz, Godspell boasts a string of well-loved songs, led by the international hit, “Day By Day.” As the cast performs “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,” the parables of Jesus come humanly and hearteningly to life. Drawing from various theatrical traditions, such as clowning, pantomime, charades, acrobatics and vaudeville, Godspell is a groundbreaking and unique theatrical experience, with a message of kindness, tolerance and love.
The 2018 Clague Playhouse production of Godspell will use the 2012 Revised Version of the script and score.
Seeking diverse ensemble of 5 women and 5 men, ages 15 to 50. Flexible casting and all roles featured. Ideal cast members will be energetic performers who sing, dance and act, and can enthusiastically embrace the child-like joy of the script and stories. Hope to find several performers who also play a musical instrument (especially acoustic guitar, percussion, piano, recorder and ukelele). All types and ethnicities are encouraged to audition. Each actor will bring his or her own personality traits to the production. All roles open. Please bring a prepared song (preferably in the style of the show) and dress for movement. The auditions will consist of solo vocals followed by a group dance audition. Readings will be held at callbacks, time and date tbd.
