AUDITIONS!

KickstArt looking for Singers for Sweeney Todd 
and Dancers for Aladdin

Durban’s top independent theatre company, KickstArt, are holding auditions for two large scale musical theatre projects due to take place in the second half of 2014: the incredible Sondheim musical, Sweeney Todd in August, and the family pantomime, Aladdin scheduled for December.

Auditions will be held on Saturday February 15 at the Playhouse’s Mayville Studios in Ramsay Road. Sweeney Todd auditions will be held from 10am-1pm, and Aladdin auditions from 2.30pm-4pm.

“We are looking for strong, classically inclined singers for Sweeney Todd, and versatile, charismatic dancers for Aladdin,” says Steven Stead, KickstArt’s Executive Director.

Singers interested in auditioning for Sweeney Todd need to learn the whole opening number of the show, The Ballad of Sweeney Todd, and arrive at 10am to put their names on a list. The sheet music for the audition song is available from the producers: just email kickstart@letni.co.za for a copy. It is not absolutely necessary to memorise the audition song, candidates may sing from the score, but they must be totally familiar with the music and be able to act while singing. Candidates must be able to sing to a very high level and be adept at harmony work. They must also be able to speak English with a Cockney/London accent. All races and ages welcome.

Sweeney Todd will rehearse from 13 July, and run at the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre from 7-24 August.

Dancers for Aladdin will be auditioned in a group at 2.30pm. Male and female dancers aged 18-35 may audition. Please sign in from 2pm. Please arrive warmed up, wearing appropriate dance clothing, and ladies please bring cabaret heels and ballet pumps. Being able to sing is an added advantage, but not a prerequisite.

Aladdin will rehearse from 10 November, and perform at the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre from 5 December -11 January.

For further enquiries, please contact KickstArt via email at kickstart@letni.co.za.
