$1,012/wk. Equity Short Engagement Touring Category 1 Contract.
Casting the SETA tour of "Jesus Christ Superstar."
Story line: One of the greatest stories ever told comes to life in the groundbreaking, iconic rock opera that reinvented musical theater for the modern age. With music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Tim Rice, this global blockbuster tells the story of the final weeks in the life of Jesus Christ, from the perspective of Judas Iscariot. As Christ’s followers grow more fervent, Judas must make his fateful choice between faith and betrayal. Filled with an exciting mix of musical styles that draw upon 1970s rock, gospel, folk, and funk themes, this contemporary imagining of the biblical tale features high energy dance and powerful storytelling.
The Production brings the focus back to the show’s origins as a rock concept album, emphasizing a rock concert aesthetic rather than musical theater. All ethnicities welcome.
