Following producer Cameron Mackintosh’s recent confirmation that Boublil and Schonberg’s musical Miss Saigon is to be revived at the West End’s Prince Edward Theatre in May 2014, it’s been announced that open auditions for the show are being held on 1 – 2 July.
The open casting call has gone out to male and female East and Southeast Asian actors, singers and dancers.
The casting call specifies that applicants must have excellent vocal and dance abilities, as well as a valid UK/EU passport or a full UK working visa that’s will be valid for the entirety of a potential one-year contract to begin next year. Successful candidates must be available to start rehearsals in early spring 2014.
If you’re interested in auditioning for the show, send your CV and photo to firstname.lastname@example.org .
The original London production of Miss Saigon enjoyed a ten-year run at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane and scooped two Olivier Awards before closing in 1999.
The musical is a modernised reimagining of Puccini’s Madame Butterfly, and centres on the love affair between an American GI and a young Vietnamese bar girl during the Vietnam War.
Tickets will soon be available for the London revival of Miss Saigon. Watch this space for details and to book.
