Register for the Manila auditions from Saturday, November 17 to Sunday, November 18.
London auditions will be scheduled as well.
Rumours suggest that Cameron Mackintosh has set his eyes on opening the revival production of "Miss Saigon" in London's West End next year.
"Miss Saigon," which is two years shy of its 25th anniversary, is Mackintosh's third most successful musical theater venture after Andrew Lloyd Webber's "The Phantom of the Opera," and Claude-Michel Schönberg and Alain Boublil's "Les Miserables."
Mackintosh's trusted creative team, which includes executive producer Trevor Jackson, director Laurence Connor, musical supervisor Stephen Brooker, choreographer Geoffrey Garrett, and Mackintosh's Philippine representative Dong Alegre, is looking for three "Kims" and at least seven Asian ensemble performers (male and female) at the auditions that will be held in Manila on Monday, November 19 to Thursday, November 22 at the Opera Haus at 3657 Bautista St. (near the corner of Buendia Avenue), Makati City.
Below are the audition requirements for the roles of "Kim" and the Asian ensemble performers:
Kim: 16 to 25-year-old mezzo-soprano. Kim, a Vietnamese, is pretty and naïve; she is strong-willed and youthful, but must have a strong stage presence. She must demonstrate English language proficiency. Some dance experience preferred.
Asian Ensemble Performers: 18 to 35-year-old male or female with an Asian/Eurasian features, and a strong singing voice. The performer must demonstrate English language proficiency. Some dance experience preferred.
For the Manila auditions, please register at the Opera Haus today, November 17 to Sunday, November 18. Bring a photo and a CV.
Prepare a song from "Miss Saigon" (a pianist will accompany the auditionee).
The auditionee may also bring a music score or an accompaniment CD.
