CHARACTER BREAKDOWN

Jesus: Must be the most charismatic individual in the cast. High energy, charming, funny, gentle but with strength. He is the sort of person others instinctively follow.

John The Baptist/Judas: He/she has attributes of both Biblical figures: He/She is both Jesus' lieutenant and most ardent disciple and the doubter who begins to question and rebel. Like Jesus, he/she is also charismatic, but in more of an overt revolutionary way. He/she is the most "serious" and intellectual of the group, though as with all the actors, he/she must still possess a good sense of physical comedy.

Nick: Very high energy. Impish and playful.

Telly: Not the brightest in the bunch, he/she is a little slow on the uptake. But there is a great sweetness and innocence about him/her. Because he/she sings "All Good Gifts" must be a very good singer.

George: The comedian. The one who can do a hundred voices and imitations.

Anna Maria: A bit rough around the edges, but basically open and vulnerable. Perhaps the youngest of the group. The first of the group to commit to following Jesus in the song "Day by Day."

Lindsay: The confident one, the show-off. The first one to volunteer, sometimes jumps in before really understanding what's going on.

Uzo: The shy one. Sometimes a little slow to get things, but when he/she does, he/she commits all the way. Has an earthy kind of warmth to him/her.

Morgan: Sassy and slightly cynical, the most urban of the group. Also the "sexy" one, but her sexiness contains a large element of put-on.

Celisse: The class clown. Goofy and a cut-up.
