The Music and Cultural Arts Division of the Church invites adults and families (with children ages 8 and older) to participate in the 2015 production of Savior of the World: His Birth and Resurrection. Members of the Church are encouraged to invite their friends or family of other Christian faiths to audition with them. We invite individuals from all ethnicities to audition.

Cast members are chosen, in part, for their theatrical ability, but directors are also seeking those with a desire to share their witness of Jesus Christ. The more than 100 speaking and singing parts are recast every year, bringing new participants to the production.

Auditions

Auditions for lead and ensemble roles are available by appointment by calling 801-240-2551 or sending an email to culturalarts@ldschurch.org. Walk-ins are also welcome.

Those interested in an ensemble role should prepare to sing a hymn or Primary song as an individual or as a family. For lead roles, please bring a résumé and prepare to sing 16 bars of a song that demonstrates your vocal range and ability.
