THE ETC BOX/ Upcoming Events


Our Musical in June will be Andrew Lloyd Weber's Jesus Christ Superstar, the rock opera of the final week of Jesus's life on earth.

Auditions will be at the Cumberland Arts Center
Saturday, January 10th from 9 am to 11 am.
Tuesday, January 13th from 6pm to 8pm.

Please use the stage door, south side towards rear of building.

This is a big show with a large chorus, half a dozen major solo parts and about 20 smaller solos- 1 line or a few lines. It's a rock opera, so needs lead guitar, bass, drums as well as several keyboards and other instruments. There are a few non-singing parts. There is some dance, and we'll use as much dance as we can get. We also need tech support, lights and sound, as well as other technical help.

We will have a keyboard available, and some sort of boombox. You can sing what you are comfortable with; pop song, show tune, hymn or praise song. We will also have everyone sing warm-up scales to find your range. High school singers welcome and we will consider eighth graders or so if they have very good voices.

If you are interested but cannot make these dates, please contact John Westin, Music Director, or Dave Evenson

Thank you.

Dave Evenson

We will be telling the story in contemporary costume and music. Lots of good voices, both male and female are needed. We will not necessarily follow traditional gender roles, so don't be surprised if we have female voices among the 12 disciples.

The pit band will include both rock band and traditional instruments.
Those interested in being part of the pit band or technical team also are welcome.

The show will run the first two weekends of June.
Performances will be: June 4-8 and June 11-14.
John Westin will be musical directory and Dave Evenson will be director.
