Auditions will be held April 24 beginning at 2 PM at Circle in the Square Theatre (1633 Broadway at 50th Street). All kids (ages 6 to 16) should be prepared to sing 16 bars of any song, a cappella.
Godspell's creative team will choose ten young performers (five girls and five boys), who will be part of the special encore during the curtain call at the May 22 performance.
In a statement, producer Ken Davenport said, "Godspell has always had a tradition of launching the next generation of stars. From the cast members of the original productions like Martin Short, Victor Garber, Andrea Martin, Jeremy Irons and so on, to the cast members of our current production who I have no doubt you'll be hearing a lot from in the years to come. So we decided, why not get a preview of tomorrow's Broadway stars?"
Rehearsals for the special encore will take place between April 30 and May 21.
