The king of musical theatre, Andrew Lloyd Webber, is launching his own TV show and is looking to cast a new Jesus Christ Superstar. To help him spot talent he’s enlisted former Spice Girl Melanie Chisholm and Aussie singer Jason Donovan to help!
Mel and Jason have not been announced as judges of the show, but the two will work with Andrew and weed through thousands of hopefuls auditioning for the coveted role.
Mel and Jason will take the group of over a thousand down to 40 and help Andrew with callbacks and training sessions. Auditions are taking place in London, Manchester, Glasgow and Dublin and Andrew said that he was even open to casting a woman in the leading role!
