Character List and Descriptions

Please note that additional characters will be added

to the ensemble, based on auditions.


JESUS: Must be the most charismatic individual in the cast. High energy, charming, funny, gentle but with strength. He is the sort of person others instinctively follow.


JOHN THE BAPTIST/JUDAS: He has attributes of both Biblical figures: He is both Jesus' lieutenant and most ardent disciple and the doubter who begins to question and rebel. Like Jesus, he is also charismatic, but in more of an overt revolutionary way. Usually played by someone handsome and masculine, with an undertone of sexuality. He is the most "serious" and intellectual of the group, though as with all the actors, he mus still possess a good sense of physical comedy.


NICK: Very high energy. Impish and playful. In the original, he played several musical instruments, including concertina, recorder and guitar.


TELLY: Not the brightest in the bunch, he is a little slow on the uptake. But there is a great sweetness and innocense about him. Because he sings "All Good Gifts" he must be a very good singer.


GEORGE: The comedian, the class clown. The guy who can do a hundred voices and imitations.


ANNA MARIA: A bit of a tomboy, but basically open and sweet. Perhaps the youngest of the group. She is the first of the group to commit to following Jesus in the song "Day by Day."


LINDSAY: The confident one, the show-off. The first one to volunteer, sometimes she jumps in before she really understands what's going on.


UZO: The shy one. Sometimes a little slow to get things, but when she does, she commits all the way. Has an "earth mother" kind of warmth to her.


MORGAN: Sassy and slightly cynical, the most urban of the group. Also the "sexy" one, but her sexiness contains a large element of put-on, in the manner of Mae West or Madonna (who in fact once played this role.)


CELISSE: The female equivalent of the class clown. Goofy and a cut-up. In the 2012 Broadway revival, she played several instruments, including conga, ukulele and guitar.
