The forthcoming musical adaptation of The Wind in the Willows is to hold open auditions ahead of its world premiere this autumn.

The show, which has music by George Stiles and Anthony Drewe and a book by Julian Fellowes, will open at the Theatre Royal in Plymouth on October 8, before running at the Lowry in Salford and the Mayflower Theatre in Southampton.

The show is looking for character actors with excellent singing and dancing skills for principal roles and male and female ensemble members.

Attendees must be aged 18 years or older and should prepare a musical theatre song.

Auditions will be held at the Lowry in Salford on April 22 and at Rambert in London on April 23, with subsequent rounds held in London between April 25 and May 27.

Based on the novel by Kenneth Grahame, The Wind in the Willows is directed by Rachel Kavanaugh and produced by Jamie Hendry Productions.

In 2014, the production raised £1 million through online crowdfunding.
