(Ages 7 & up)

This is a group audition. Come one of these evenings.
Plan to stay for the entire time specified.
No experience or preparation required. Dress for movement.

Lyrics by Tim Rice and Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber
“Jesus Christ Superstar,” the king of rock operas, was created at the end of the turbulent 60s with a social and political rebel at its center. Jesus’ meteoric rise to fame offers, as the title suggests, a parallel to contemporary celebrity worship. Judas sings, “If you strip away the myth from the man, you can see where we all soon will be,” prophesying centuries of controversy that would surround this one man, his life and his identity. Propelled by a stirring score that is driving and majestic, satirical and tender, JCS illuminates the transcendent power of the human spirit. This show startles the mind with its relevance and social implications. We will transform the sanctuary of a historic church, featuring stained glass and wood carvings, into a theatrical rock venue. A large, diverse cast is needed to bring to life this passionate convergence of lead guitar, pipe organ, pews, percussion and provocation.

The show runs November 21, 22, 28, 29 and 30, and December 4, 5, 6 and 7, 2014. Rehearsals start September 21. — Project Type: Live Event

Rehearsal Schedule: First read-through the week of September 15. The final rehearsal schedule will be planned after casting, but generally three nights a week.

ABOUT THE PLAY: Leading Ladies is all about love. Despite our best (or worst) intentions, love derails our well-constructed plans and makes us behave like fools for those we love and can’t live without. Leo and Jack are failed Shakespearean actors who scheme to steal an inheritance from an old lady (Florence) by posing as her long-lost relatives, “Max” and “Steve.” But when the “nephews” turn out to be “Maxine” and “Stephanie,” the undaunted actors press on in drag.

Hilarious complications ensue when Leo falls in love with Meg (who is engaged to Duncan) and Jack falls for Audrey (who is pursued by Butch, to the dismay of his father, Doc), and Leo and Jack constantly have to switch between their male and female identities. Meg also loves the theater, so Leo decides to stage a performance of “Twelfth Night,” Shakespeare’s gender-bending folly that serves as the perfect backdrop for our play. So, “take a walk on the wild side,” check your inhibitions at the door, and show us what you’ve got.

Relatively Speaking – Weathervane – 1443444
08-20-14 – Cleveland, OH>Columbus, OH – Weathervane Playhouse is holding auditions for RELATIVELY SPEAKING by Alan Ayckbourn, directed by Eileen Moushey.

Open Call Auditions: Sunday, August 24, Monday, August 25, 2014

Performances dates are OCTOBER 9- OCTOBER 26. Thursdays at 7:30pm; Friday & Saturdays at 8pm; Sunday matinees at 2:30.

Alan Ayckbourn’s RELATIVELY SPEAKING was first produced in the late 60s and launched the career of this prolific playwright. Since then it’s been a regional staple throughout Britain but didn’t return to the national stage until a 2013 revival was produced in the West End and toured nationally.

While wildly popular in Britain, RELATIVELY SPEAKING did not get a solid American production. It never played on Broadway, despite numerous attempts that always fell through, including one production that, disastrously, attempted to “Americanize” it.

That won’t be happening in the Weathervane production! British it is, and British it will be played!
