The show's producers are auditioning for new cast members
Producers behind Hamilton are searching for new cast members for the musical’s run in London’s West End.
Lin-Manuel Miranda‘s hit production opened at the Victoria Theatre at the end of last year, after achieving huge success in the US.
Now, a casting call has been posted to the musical’s Twitter page, seeking men and women in their 20s and 30s, from all ethnic backgrounds. The post notes the production is looking specifically for singers who rap and hip-hop dancers.
Auditions are due to take place in the coming months, with recalls occurring in the spring and summer. Applicants must be available for rehearsals from October 8 for one year.
Those interested in auditioning are asked to send a current photo and CV to the production company to register their interest.
The musical tells the story of Alexander Hamilton, one of America’s founding fathers, using songs that incorporate elements of rap, hip-hop, pop, R&B and soul as well as more traditional show tunes.
The West End production stars Jamael Westman as Hamilton, a part originally portrayed in the Broadway production by Miranda himself.
Tickets for Hamilton in London have been incredibly high demand, but producers have recently announced a free-to-enter “lottery” system which allows winners to buy either one or two tickets for £10 each. Find out more on the musical’s website.
