You’d better shape up, because the Millennium Forum will be holding auditions on Friday 19thand Tuesday 23rd April 2013 from 4:00pm-8:00pm 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 25th to 27th July and they want you to help make it happen!

Calling on male and female 14 – 21 year olds who can act, dance and sing, 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!

This 2013 amateur production of Grease is presented by arrangement with Josef Weinberger Ltd.

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 Booking is essential.

The auditions will take place at the Millennium Forum on Friday 19th (from 4:00pm) andMonday 23rd April (from 4.00pm).  Following intensive rehearsals, Grease will be staged at the Millennium Forum from Thursday 25th to Saturday 27th July 2013. Tickets are now on sale priced at £8.00/£10.00, available from the Box Office on T: 028 7126 4455.
