Equity actors for principal roles in JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR

This will not be a traditional production of SUPERSTAR (it will not be set in biblical times). For context, think Handmaid's Tale; a time in the not-so-distant dystopian future, where a fundamentalist regime (that treats women as property of the state) is in the early stages of creating a totalitarian society and overthrowing the country as we know it. Jesus (and his followers) are part of a resistance movement opposing this regime. Mary, a prisoner of the regime, is freed and joins Jesus and his followers in the resistance. This cast should feel like "real people" (as opposed to polished musical theater performers). Acting is AS IMPORTANT as singing! The cast will be a group of people who are totally unique with lots of personality and who make interesting, brave, and bold choices. ALL ETHNICITIES ENCOURAGED TO SUBMIT UNLESS SPECIFICALLY NOTED IN THE DESCRIPTIONS.
