Online Open Call for the Role of:

Jesus

He is a very special seven-year-old boy with a buoyant energy and magnetic charm, as well as quiet intensity. In many ways a normal young boy, he is beginning to understand his divine nature; at times we see in him a soulful quality, an unspoken intelligence and a deep stillness. Should have no specific regional accent. We will be looking at boys who are age 7 to 10 (if 9/10 then small for their age) and will consider children of all ethnicities.

Storyline:

Based on the best-selling novel "Christ the Lord: Out of Egypt" by Anne Rice, this diligently researched, fictional account imagines the story of Jesus at the ages of 7-8 as he and his ordinary, yet extraordinary, family depart Egypt to return home to Nazareth during the turbulent times of the First Century. This beautiful, faith-affirming story follows the young Jesus as he starts to understand his real identity, and transports us into the dreamy imaginings of a child filled with wonder, beauty and miracles.
