Oct 26 2012

Producers of the upcoming Broadway show Motown: The Musical are launching a nationwide casting search for African-American actors to portray young versions of Michael Jackson and Stevie Wonder as well as such music legends as Marvin Gaye and Smokey Robinson.  The creative team will hold open auditions in Detroit, New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago and Atlanta for the production based on the life of record mogul Berry Gordy.  The casting team is searching for one actor between the ages of 8 and 11 with a "phenomenal high tenor" voice who can sing and move like Michael Jackson at 10 years-old and also portray 11 year-old Stevie Wonder.  Actors in their 20's are being sought to portray the physical and vocal likeness of Marvin Gaye and Smokey Robinson in addition to female African-American singers who can handle the songs of Diana Ross.  Auditions will take place in Detroit and New York City on Nov. 3; followed by Los Angeles on Nov. 10; Chicago on Nov. 18; and Atlanta on Dec 1.  If you can't make the casting call in person but want to submit your video, you can visit the Motown: The Musical website for details on how to enter.
