#Auditions all over South Africa and Theatre Directors Needed

Welcome dear Reader.

This week we have some Auditions for you all over South Africa and a Scholarship for Directors.

Auditions will be held in South Africa in October to find the ultimate Whitney Houston impersonator.
Showtime Australia is conducting a world-wide search for the ultimate Whitney Houston impersonator for a new tribute show called "The Greatest Love of All".  Nationwide auditions will be held in South Africa in October 2012.  A singer with a superb voice is being sought to take the coveted lead role as Whitney Houston.

Auditions in Johannesburg take place at the Joburg Theatre in Braamfontein on 3 October at 13h00; in Cape Town at the Artscape Theatre on 5 October at 13h00 and in Durban at the Sibaya Casino on 7 October at 13h00.

Each artist interested in auditioning must send a CV, a current headshot and an audio demo to by no later than 1 October.  Artists accepted into the audition will be notified via e-mail with an audition time, will be required to perform a Whitney song and must bring their own backing CD.

Showtime Australia has produced some of the world’s top tribute shows including Queen – It’s a Kinda Magic.  The rampant popularity of these concerts is driven by Showtime’s ability to transport audiences to a time and place they once loved.
