ABOUT THE SHOW
Kicking off OCTA's 2016-17 season this fall, the beloved Off-Broadway musical comedy ALTAR BOYZ tells the holy inspiring story of five small-town boys – Matthew, Mark, Luke, Juan, and Abraham – trying to save the world one screaming fan at a time. Their pious pop act, including lyrics like “Girl You Make Me Wanna Wait” and “Jesus Called Me on My Cell Phone,” worked wonders on the Ohio bingo-hall-and-pancake-breakfast circuit. But when fate brings them to New York, will the boyz take a bite out of the forbidden apple?
CHARACTER BREAKDOWN (all roles are available)
Director’s Note: The ages of the group will be determined by those auditioning. We encourage anyone from late teens to early thirties to audition. If you are interested in auditioning for more than one Altar Boy, you are more than welcome to. All members of the cast are leads, and all members of the cast dance. All must have comedic ability. Please refer to the Audition Packet (at link below) for more information on each boy.
ABRAHAM – The nice Jewish boy who loves hip-hop. Baritone. Prepare Song “Everybody Fits”
JUAN – The “Latin lover’ with a passion for beautiful women. Baritone. Prepare Song “La Vida Eternal”
LUKE – The bad boy of the group. Bass-Baritone. Prepare Song “Body, Mind, and Soul”
MARK – A sensitive young man who loves Cher. Tenor. Prepare Song “Epiphany”
MATTHEW – The super handsome leader of the group. Baritone. Prepare “Something About You”
