In a modern musical retelling of the Gospel of Matthew, a group of ordinary people are called by John the Baptist to give up their normal lives to follow Jesus Christ. Through parables, songs, and dance, the group spreads Christ's message of kindness, tolerance, and love, even as the story moves inevitably forward to The Last Supper and Crucifixion.

Role # 5 John the Baptist
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role

John the Baptist/Judas (Baritone): He has attributes of both Biblical figures: He is both Jesus' lieutenant and most ardent disciple and the doubter who begins to question and rebel. Like Jesus, he is also charismatic, but in more of an overt revolutionary way. Usually played by someone handsome and masculine, with an undertone of sexuality. He is the most "serious" and intellectual of the group, though as with all the actors, he must still possess a good sense of physical comedy. He sings "Prepare Ye," "All For the Best," and "On the Willows."
