West End musical Motown to hold open auditions

Open auditions will be held for the upcoming West End production of Broadway hit musical Motown.

The show, which follows the career of producer and songwriter Berry Gordy and the creation of Motown Records, opens at the Shaftesbury Theatre on 11 February 2016.

Auditions will take place at the London Welsh Centre (157-163 Gray’s Inn Road, London, WC1X 8UE) on 7 July, with registration from 10am until 1pm, and will give people the opportunity to play the “iconic artists of Motown” in the show.

Featuring hits including “My Girl,” “What’s Going On,” “Dancing in the Street,” “I Heard It Through The Grapevine” and “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough”, the show premiered on Broadway in 2013.

Motown is currently booking until 22 October 2016. Directed by Charles Randolph-Wright, it has music supervision by Ethan Popp, co-orchestrations and additional arrangements by Bryan Cook, dance arrangements by Zane Mark and music direction by Gareth Weedon.
