What Comes After - Character of Jack - Audition

As you all know, today is a gracious day. Our beloved Mary has been chosen to ascend by the powers above. Countless people have risen, only to never return. In our pursuit of salvation, we must do everything we can to please the powers above, they govern us, protect us and one day, they will save us. Our service to them takes precedent over our own lives, for if young Mary is accepted, the powers above will grant us the salvation we have been looking for. Even though Mary may never return, even though she may be struck down and vanquished. We
all know that this has to happen.
(pause)
Mary, will you ascend from this mortal plain, and face those that reside above?
