Jesus Christ Superstar Callback Sides

Hey Everyone –

Posting what songs we are going to be asking to hear for callbacks for each role below. The files for this music is posted below – it may not be in the same order that the songs are listed here so make sure that you get the right side!

PLEASE NOTE:

If you get called back for Jesus or Judas or Pilate: We want you find the way that these songs sound best in YOUR voice, not necessarily the way that they sound on the CD. Each performer of these roles takes different interpretations and we want you to find a way that works comfortably and safely for your voice. We do not want you screaming notes that you have trouble hitting – we would rather hear a lower note that you can hit repeatedly and safely. Both of these roles require a large amount of singing and we do not want to risk people losing their voices or harming their voices.
