All interested musicians and actors in the Diocese of San José are invited to audition.

Auditions are open for both men and women. Cast needs:

  • Sara (older, in her 60's)
  • Salome (mother of James and John)

This piece will be performed as a spoken word concert, so people will not have to memorize a lot of dialogue, but they will have to memorize the songs.

Performance date is to be determined. Additionally, the musical will be filmed at studios in San Francisco with the same people that will be live performance cast. Cast members will need to be available throughout the summer of 2008 for filming.
