The upcoming national tour of American Idiot held an open casting call in Toronto on March 26. The rock musical based on Green Day's Grammy Award-winning album will hit the road this fall.
The open-call audition notice states that they are seeking "male and female rock singers in their early to late 20s. All hopefuls should bring a recent picture, resume and prepare a short rock song. A piano accompanist will be provided. Men who play the guitar should bring one and accompany themselves."
The national tour of American Idiot will make its Canadian debut in Toronto Dec. 28, presented by Dancap Productions.
Here are some sights from the packed audition facility:
American Idiot Tour Holds Open Call in Toronto
Directed by Michael Mayer, who co-wrote the libretto with Green Day front man and lyricist Billie Joe Armstrong, American Idiot (with music by Green Day) takes all of the songs from the famous punk album (and more from Green Day's catalog) and fashions a story of three lifelong friends who choose between their dreams and the safety of suburbia. "Their quest for meaning in a post 9-11 world leads them on an exhilarating journey," according to producers.
American Idiot continues at Broadway's St. James Theatre.
