Open auditions for Once the musical in Dublin
Fancy yourself as a bit of an aul hand at the bodhrán? Well it could come to your advantage if you've ever wanted to feature in a hit musical, as the creative team of Once the musical, the Tony Award winning Broadway adaptation of Glen Hansards Academy Award winning film, open the doors of Whelans to the public for auditions for the Irish and UK production. Opening in the West End on March 16th, but preceded by a European premiere performance run in our very own Gaiety theatre from February 22nd to March 9th, they're looking for eight male and four female cast members to join the production. Applicants can range from their 20s to their 50s, but must have the ability to move well and speak in a convincing Irish or Eastern European accent. So no bother to anyone with some native blood in them then. All the nitty gritty below, as well as a sneak peek of what is expected of you West End wannabes.
Applicants must have the ability to play one of the following to a high standard: piano, guitar, violin, fiddle, accordion, cello, ukele, mandolin, percussion or bass guitar.
All will be required to sing and play an instrument, which they MUST bring to the audition with them. They need to bring a photograph and CV along to the audition.
People will be seen strictly in the order in which they arrive. Auditions MUST be completed by 5pm. Audition registration will stop at 12 noon.
If you have a love of music and would be suitable, then come along to Whelans, Saturday 24th November at 9.30am.
