Male. 20s- 40s. Tenor/high baritone (D3-Bb4(+)) with authentic northern soul/church/RnB voice to escalate the 1st act into a musical frenzy. Featured Ensemble role. Fanatic follower of Jesus and his underground movement. Instigator, outlaw, protestor.

Members of the Ensemble may also cover select principal roles.

The Production brings the focus back to the show’s origins as a rock concept album, emphasizing a rock concert aesthetic rather than musical theater.

passion for the sound & music of late 60s/early 70s rock music. In particular The Beatles, Gloria Jones, Led Zepplin, Stevie Wonder, Carol King, James Taylor, Joni Mitchell & Pink Floyd.
