Lake Tahoe Community College schedules ‘Godspell’ auditions
Calling all actors — the Lake Tahoe Community College Theatre Arts Department is ramping up for its next production, Stephen Schwartz and John Michael Tebelak’s “Godspell.”
“The musical tells the story of a small group of people who help Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a wide variety of games, storytelling technique and a hefty dose of comic timing.
“An eclectic blend of songs, ranging in style from pop to vaudeville, is employed as the story of Jesus’ life dances across the stage. Dissolving hauntingly into the Last Supper and the Crucifixion, Jesus’ messages of kindness, tolerance and love come vibrantly to life,” states a press release from LTCC.
Auditions for “Godspell,” which first opened Off-Broadway in 1971, take place Monday, March 27, at 7 p.m. in the on-campus Duke Theatre — and actors of all ages and backgrounds are welcome.
“Before auditioning, actors should read the play and become familiar with it. Scripts will be available on reserve at the front desk of LTCC’s Roberta Mason Library,” continues the release.
Light and soundboard operators, stage manager, backstage crew and construction workers are also being hired for the performances.
The show, which features the popular song “Day by Day,” will run June 16-25.
