Hamilton‘s move to the West End draws nearer and nearer each day. And now it feels more real than ever, with the production announcing open auditions that will be held to find its London cast.
Looking for singers, rappers and hip-hop dancers of all ethnicities, actors will find their opportunity to audition in London, during the week beginning 7th November 2016. The producers have specifically said that they are looking for men and women in their 20s and 30s, and there will be separate singing and dancing auditions that they can register for. All roles, except that of King George, originated by Jonathan Groff, are being auditioned for.
The show is to replace Billy Elliot as the Victoria Palace Theatre’s resident musical from October 2017, with its tickets going on sale next month. Rehearsals of the show are due to start next August.
The Lin-Manuel Miranda hit, which has won countless awards, will see its London show produced by West End producing legend, Cameron Mackintosh.
