Disney Theatrical have announced that they will be holding open auditions for their new West End musical Aladdin.
The critically acclaimed show which opened at the Prince Edward Theatre in June 2016, and Disney’s casting team will be holding auditions for both male and female singers and dancers to play ensemble and featured roles.
Disney’s casting team is looking for athletic, technically trained dancers with very strong technique in all styles, including tap, as well as excellent singing voices. Male dancers with acro, gymnastic and/or tumbling skills is a plus but not essential. Singers should be excellent and be able to dance well in order to make up the ensemble.
Attendees must be aged 18 years or older, eligible to work in the UK and have a playing age of 20s-30s. Actors of all ethnicities and cultural backgrounds are strongly encouraged to attend.
Full information, including what to wear and bring to the audition, can be found at www.aladdinauditions.co.uk.
Similar open auditions were held for the original London company in 2015, with seven members of the 38 strong company cast from those calls.
Of course, for those of us who lack the talent, but enjoy watching great shows with talented performers, tickets are available for Aladdin through Encore, one of our box office partners.
