Judas (Rock Tenor, low D to high E) A tortured soul, angry, bitter, and wildly emotional. He is tortured by his role in this drama, disappointed in Jesus. Judas sings with a raw emotionally charged passion. This is a major singing role.
Jesus (Rock Tenor, low Bb to high E, optional high G) His righteous anger and acceptance of all His people are his main traits. The Jesus of this piece is a little less delicate and more rough-hewn character. He is strong willed, a rock and roll “wailer” and, of course, a Superstar.
Peter (Tenor/Baritone) The head apostle and Jesus’ right hand man. He is loyal and loving and in awe of Jesus, yet conflicted as he does deny Him and criticizes Jesus for His relationship with Mary.
Mary Magdalene (Folk/R&B Mezzo/Alto, low G# to B, optional high A) Mary is the leading lady of the piece. She is very attached to Jesus and very much in love with him. She is His protector, caretaker and soother, quite nurturing and very grateful for His attention.
Pontius Pilate (Tenor/Baritone, low A to Bb) Pilate is given the case of Jesus and is eager to pass it on to someone else yet he is given the decision back. He is stern and puzzled at the same time. He plays his role but is reluctant to put Jesus to death himself.
Herod (Tenor/Baritone, low B to high B) The eccentric to whom Jesus is presented. Herod is unimpressed yet quite impressive in his own way.
Annas (Tenor, low F to C#) & Caiaphas (Bass, very low C to middle F) The officials who negotiate with Judas for information regarding Jesus whereabouts to aid in His arrest. These men are worried that Jesus presence will hurt their power. They are devious, covert, stern and slimy.
Simon Zealotes (Tenor) One of the apostles.
Soul Sisters (3, R & B Soprano/Alto, dance)
Large Ensemble making up the 10 apostles, 5 high priests, lepers, merchants, tormentors, reporters

Mr. Fitch – Age Any Adult Male
Mrs. Fitch – Age Any Adult Female
Meet gossip columnists Mr. and Mrs. Fitch. When the social circuit no longer provides juicy morsels, when the pressure to create news in our never-ending news cycle becomes just a bit much, it’s time to toss back the martinis, toss around the bon mots and realize that great celebrity can just appear out of thin air. This wicked, urbane comedy is a scathing look at who is in, who is out and who may not even exist at all.
