Post Tenor roles or orchestra?
G'day everyone!

A local theatre company is putting on JCS early next year and I was thinking of auditioning. The roles of Jesus and Pilate have been pre-cast (Pilate by Jon English who played Judas in a professional production that toured Australia).

Are there any other reasonable male roles - particularly for a tenor?

Also, is there a requirement for a trumpet in the orchestra?

Thanks for any replies and thoughts!

Buff :D

Wouldn't that be pretty much "anyone who's not named Caiaphas?"

And yes, there is a requirement for trumpet in the orchestrations, reduced or not.

Seriously? Where is this happening? That would be great to see.

It's happening in Tasmania, Australia March 2012.

Here's a link to a story in the local paper a while back.
