The Music and Cultural Arts Division of the Church is inviting adults and families (with children ages 8 and older) to participate in the 2016 production of Savior of the World: His Birth and Resurrection in the Conference Center Theater in Salt Lake City.

Savior of the World is a two-hour musical production based on the events surrounding the birth and Resurrection of Jesus Christ. It was first performed in 2000 for the inauguration of the Church’s Conference Center Theater.

Local members of the Church are encouraged to invite their friends or family of other Christian faiths to audition with them. Individuals from all races and ethnic groups are encouraged 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

To audition, make an 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. To audition for a lead role, please bring a resume and prepare to sing 16 bars of a song that demonstrates your vocal range and ability.
