August 16th & 17th
The Friends of Coleman Memorial Park Present a Steitz City Players Production of GODSPELL, Friday & Saturday August 16th & 17th at 6:30 pm. Rain dates, 23rd & 24th. To be held at Veterans Memorial Amphitheater, 1400 Maple Street, Lebanon, PA 17046. Admission by donation.
Synopsis: At the behest of John the Baptist (David Haskell), young men and women forsake their jobs and take up the mantle of Jesus Christ (Victor Garber) -- becoming his disciples -- in a musical retelling of the Gospel of Matthew set in modern-day New York City. Using song and dance, the apostles traverse the city, spreading Christ's message of love and tolerance as the time moves ever closer to his betrayal at the hands of Judas (also played by David Haskell) and, ultimately, his crucifixion.
Open-Call Auditions for ALL GODSPELL ROLES will be held: 5/18 + 5/19, 4 PM to 6 PM. All persons should prepare 16-32 bars of an up-tempo, contemporary theatre song. In addition to this requirement, you are welcome to provide an additional 16-32 bar excerpt from any song of any style or background. An accompanist will be provided, so please provide clearly marked sheet music on white paper. Please be prepared to provide your resume and your conflict calendar.
