Casting Call for “Tarzan the Musical!” Show

Expires: 3/3/2024
Paying up to $120/day
Description

The company is holding auditions for Tarzan the Musical!! and looking for singers, please see the details below.

About the project:
Based on Disney’s epic animated musical adventure and Edgar Rice Burrough’s Tarzan of the Apes, Tarzanfeatures heart-pumping music by rock legend, Phil Collins, and a book by Tony Award-winning playwright, David Henry Hwang. High-flying excitement and hits, like the Academy Award winning “You’ll Be in My Heart,” as well as “Son of Man” and “Two Worlds,” make Tarzan an unforgettable theatrical experience.
Washed up on the shores of West Africa, an infant boy is taken in and raised by gorillas who name him Tarzan. Apart from striving for acceptance from his ape father, Tarzan’s life is mostly monkey business until a human expedition treks into his tribe’s territory, and he encounters creatures like himself for the first time. Tarzan struggles to navigate a jungle, thick with emotion, as he discovers his animal upbringing clashing with his human instincts.

Additional info:
Please prepare 16-32 bars of a Musical Theatre piece, that compliments the style of the show. An accompanist will be provided so please be sure to mark your sheet music so it is easy to read. You may also bring in a track to sing along with if that is more comfortable. Will have a Bluetooth speaker available.
Come prepared to dance and move as you will learn and perform a short dance/movement call.
