Hardin County Playhouse in Elizabethtown will hold auditions Monday and Tuesday for its production of “Jesus Christ Superstar.”

The auditions are at 6:30 p.m. both nights at the Plum Alley Theater in the Historic State Theater complex at 209 W. Dixie Ave.

Needed for the play are 20-plus men, ages 15-70, and 15 or more women, ages 15-70.

Those auditioning need not prepare material in advance and will read from a script with other actors. Since the production is a musical, those who audition will be asked to sing a brief selection from the rock opera, a sample of which also will be provided.

Rehearsals for the show are Monday and Friday evenings and Saturday and Sunday afternoons. Performances of the show are slated for Aug. 8-10 and 14-17.

“Jesus Christ Superstar,” which began as a concept album in 1969 and first opened on Broadway in 1971, tells the story of the last seven days in the life of Jesus Christ.
