Open auditions announced for 'Jesus Christ Superstar'

Center Theatre Players will hold open auditions for principal and multiple featured roles in their upcoming production of "Jesus Christ Superstar" directed by Sandy Reigel. Children ages 9-13 and adults are invited to audition.

The show, which will be presented as part of the Penn State Beaver Brodhead Cultural Center’s summer season, will be held at 7:30 p.m., July 26, 27 and 28, in the auditorium of the Beaver campus Student Union Building, Center Township.

Adults who audition are asked to prepare one song from the show or a song from a similar pop/rock musical. Auditions will be held at 7 p.m., Sunday, April 29, and Monday, April 30, in the auditorium. Adults must schedule an audition time by contacting the Brodhead Cultural Center at 724-773-3610 or rxm70@psu.edu.

Children’s auditions will be held at 6 p.m., Sunday, May 6, in the auditorium. Children do not need to schedule an audition time and do not need to prepare a song to audition. Children will learn a song taught by Reigel and will perform it individually.

An accompanist will be provided for all auditions, but individuals may bring their own accompaniment.

Educators who participate in the production may be eligible for Act 48 credit through the Pennsylvania Department of Education.

"Jesus Christ Superstar," with music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Tim Rice, was first staged on Broadway in 1971 and has become one of the world’s most widely-recognized rock operas.

This summer marks the 30th anniversary of the Center Theatre Players productions for the Brodhead Cultural Center.
