Open-call auditions for the "Cast of 2032" were attended by more than 500 kids; the creative and producing team of the Broadway revival of Stephen Schwartz's Godspell selected five boys and five girls (plus one "swing").
"The Godspell Cast of 2032" features Gaten Matarazzo as Jesus, Danny Ward as John the Baptist/Judas, Montana Byrne as Anna Maria, Grace Capeless as Celisse, Zoe Considine as Morgan, Jon Viktor Corpuz as Telly, Alec Gallazzi as George, Rebecca Goldfarb as Lindsay, Analise Scarpaci as Uzo and Evan Smolin as Nick. Holly Block is the swing.
Producer Ken Davenport said in a previous statement, "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?"
