PLEASE ONLY APPLY IF YOU ARE AN ACTOR AND SINGER, THIS IS A MUSICAL! :)
PLEASE DO NOT APPLY AGAIN IF YOU HAVE ALREADY DONE IT :)

Allez Hop! Theatre is casting for a brand new musical and we are making a trailer for it.

It will be a high standard film which we will use as a pitch and send to off west end theatres in the hope of being picked up as one of their in-house productions. This is what you are applying for, think of it as a pilot for a TV series, this is basically a pilot for a musical.

If you get cast for the trailer, you will be required for 3 or 4 days (depending on the character): one day rehearsing, one day filming and 1 or 2 days recording in a studio the songs used.

We have huge expectations for this project and are aiming high, all the way to Broadway, although we have to start from scratch! The author/playwright is quite famous, with a lot of contacts, and the show is totally amazing. The script is beautifully written and the songs very catchy. We can't divulge more yet but all will be explained if you get to audition at the end of January 2019 (exact date tbc) where you will be required to sign an NDA.

We know that the pay is not great at this stage but if the show gets picked up, you will have a good chance to get the part in the theatre and if the trailer is used for advertising the show online, you will be paid the appropriate buyout for its usage.

PLEASE READ EACH CHARACTER BRIEF CAREFULLY BEFORE APPLYING.

THANK YOU AND GOOD LUCK!
