GODSPELL Open call

Saturday, July 25 – 1 – 4pm

Sunday, July 26 – 1 – 4pm

The Gallery Players is seeking an ensemble of actors and actor-musicians for its upcoming production of Godspell, directed by Ben Tostado, to kick off its 49th season.

In this unique interpretation, the players, including Jesus, come from a life of disadvantage. They are the underprivileged that are ignored or forgotten by society. Hardened by their life circumstances, they spend their days on the streets in a world that is uncertain, hostile, and joyless. When a stranger appears, they discover a hope and a perspective on life they never knew existed.

We are seeking 5 men and 5 women who have a hardness about them, yet possess the ability to express boundless energy and joy. A comedic sensibility with a background in improvisation and physical comedy is a must.

For this production, the music will be played by some of the actors. We are especially seeking those trained in rock or folk guitar, piano and drums. Band experience is a plus. *Jesus will play the guitar.

Diverse performers of all ethnicities, abilities and gender identities are strongly encouraged to attend the audition.

Please prepare 16 bars. You may sing from the show.

Please also prepare a one-minute monologue. If your monologue is dramatic, we ask that you consider the given circumstances stated above. If your monologue is comedic, consider the broad humor of the show. Ideally, all actors should have the ability to play both.

Actor-musicians, please be prepared to accompany yourself. For non-musicians accompanist will be provided.

We are seeking enthusiastic, hard-working, talented, self-starting people who are willing and able to work in an Off-Off Broadway setting. The Gallery Players operates under the Equity NYC Showcase code.

Producers will be expected to supervise a production from the choosing of a director through opening night, making sure that each show meets our high standards and comes in within budget.

Designers: Though Gallery does have Volunteers to help with everything from building and hanging to ushering and concessions, it is ultimately the designer’s job to make sure the design is executed.
