Millennium Forum Grease Audition Call

Derry~Londonderry's Millennium Forum to stage a new youth production of the classic musical in July

You’d better shape up, because the Millennium Forum in Derry~Londonderry will be holding auditions on Friday 19 and Tuesday 23 April, 2013 from 4pm to 8pm for its annual youth production.

This year, Jim Jacob’s and Warren Cassey’s Grease will be recreated for a three-night run at the Forum from July 25 – 27, and they want you to help make it happen.

Male and female performers aged between 14 and 21 who can act, dance and sing are needed, and the Forum hopes to find its Danny, Sandy, Frenchie, Rizzo, Kenickie plus all other Rydell High students for this energetic and fun new production.

At the audition you will be required to dance, sing and deliver a short dialogue of the script. If you are one of the lucky ones to get a part, it is vital that you can commit to rehearsals from June right through to the public performances in July.

Kate Guelke, Education & Outreach Officer at the Millennium Forum, encourages all those with a desire to perform to audition. 'For those who make the final cast, you will become a part of an unforgettable and truly inspirational project.

'Judging by the high standards of previous year’s auditions for Return to the Forbidden Planet, Sweeney Todd, Chess, Les Miserablés and West Side Story, the Forum anticipates roles for Grease to be highly contested roles for the 2013 production.'

Featuring such pop chart-toppers as 'Greased Lightnin’', 'Summer Nights' and 'Look at Me I’m Sandra Dee', Grease is a classic rock’n’roll musical with an edge. The Millennium Forum’s seventh consecutive youth musical looks set to be an automatic, systematic, hydromatic hit!

If you are aged 14 – 21 and believe you have what it takes to be onstage in the Millennium Forum’s production of Grease, telephone 028 7127 2776 to book your audition or email kateg@millenniumforum.co.uk. Booking is essential.

The auditions will take place at the Millennium Forum on Friday, April 19 from 4pm and Monday, April 23 from 4pm.
