Show Description:

A small group of people help Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a wide variety of games, storytelling techniques and hefty doses 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.

Cast:

Jesus

  • Charismatic and high energy, yet gentle and loving. He is the deceptively calm leader of the troupe. He is eventually betrayed by Judas and persecuted.
  • Gender: Male
  • Age: 18 to 30
  • Vocal range top: G5
  • Vocal range bottom: A3

John The Baptist / Judas

  • He possesses the attributes of two Biblical figures: he is both Jesus' lieutenant and most ardent disciple, and also the doubter who begins to question and rebel. Like Jesus, he is also charismatic, but in an overt revolutionary way. Handsome and masculine with a subtle undertone of sexuality.
  • Gender: Male
  • Age: 18 to 35
  • Vocal range top: G5
  • Vocal range bottom: A3

Ensemble

  • Soloists, featured actors, and others.
