Broadway blockbuster Hamilton has announced that it will hold “open auditions for singers who rap” in New York City May 3 for replacements to the New York production, and cast for upcoming "national tours."
An “open call” means you do not have to already be a member of Actors Equity in order to audition.
According to an audition notice from Telsey & Co., producers are seeking "non-white men and women, ages 20s to 30s, for Broadway and upcoming tours! No prior theatre experience necessary."
Sign-in starts at 10 AM May 3 at Chesea Studios, 151 West 26th Street, sixth floor, in Manhattan. Auditions will run 11 AM to 2 PM.
A separate notice says that open calls will also be held in Los Angeles and San Francisco in mid-April for “amazing singers, rappers, and dancers for the upcoming touring and Chicago companies and for future replacement in the Broadway production of Hamilton. Equity and non-Equity performers of all ethnicities encouraged to submit.”
Those interested in auditioning in L.A. and San Francisco should visit the Telsey + Company Facebook page for details.
