Dreaming of Disney? The company’s theatrical-production wing will hold an open-call audition in Las Vegas this month for male dancers to join the upcoming Broadway and North American touring production of "Newsies."
The latter will include a stop at Smith Center for the Performing Arts during the 2014-15 season, with performance dates to be announced at a later time.
Auditions for the Tony Award-winning musical, based on the 1992 film of the same name starring a young Christian Bale, are Friday, Jan. 31, at 4 p.m. at Alexis Park Resort Hotel.
The first-come, first-serve event is open to trained Equity and non-Equity male dancers of all ethnicities ages 16 to 22 years old with the ability to tap and sing.
The audition will be overseen by Broadway veteran and “Newsies” Associate Choreographer Lou Castro.
Interested participants should bring a photo and resume, sneakers, tap shoes and knee pads.
