Auditions for “Jesus Christ Superstar”

Auditions for the two male leads for the Driftwood Players production of “Jesus Christ Superstar” will be held at 5 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 24, and 7 p.m. Monday, Aug. 25, at the Driftwood Theatre, 120 East Third Street in Aberdeen.

The rock opera, written by Andrew Lloyd Weber with lyrics by Tim Rice, is a contemporary look at the events that defined the last seven days in the life of Jesus Christ. Jesus’ meteoric rise provides, as the title suggests, a parallel to contemporary celebrity worship as his radical teachings are ever-more embraced. Judas increasingly questions the enlightened motives of this new prophet, resulting in betrayal. Christ’s final days are dramatized with emotional intensity, through thought-provoking edge and explosive theatricality.

Director Steven Puvogel will look to cast Jesus and Judas during the auditions, looking for men in the 20- to 40-year-old range. Auditions for the rest of the cast will be held at a later date. For any questions or for more information, contact the director at steven@puvogel.net.
