Hamilton to hold open auditions in West End
Musical Hamilton has announced open auditions for its forthcoming West End run.
The show begins playing at the Victoria Palace Theatre in October next year, with tickets going on sale next month.
Producers are holding open auditions in the week beginning November 7, and are looking for singers who rap and hip-hop dancers.
They state that they are keen to see men and women in their 20s and 30s, of all ethnicities, with performers able to register for either the dance or singing auditions.
Rehearsals for the show, written by Lin-Manuel Miranda, begin in August next year. Performers must have a UK/EU passport, and a full working visa for the duration of the contract, which will be one year.
Auditions will take place in London and the producers have stated they will not be seeing people for the role of King George.
Hamilton, which won 11 Tony awards on Broadway, is produced by Cameron Mackintosh, with Jeffrey Seller, Sander Jacobs, Jill Furman, and the Public Theater.
