This autumn Motown the Musical will embark on its first ever UK and Ireland Tour whilst the show continues to play at Shaftesbury Theatre in London’s West End.

Adam Spiegel Productions will be holding open auditions for talented children and adult actors and actresses to play leading roles in the touring production.

The open auditions will take place on Saturday 16 June on stage at Manchester Opera House and Sunday 17 June at the workshop spaces in Birmingham Conservatoire.

The producers are looking for black and mixed-race boys, aged between 8-13 with unbroken voices and under 4’11” to play Michael Jackson, little Stevie Wonder and little Berry Gordy. Children auditionees will be taught a short dance routine and the song I Want You Back. Please bring trainers, comfortable clothes to dance in and plenty of water. The children’s auditions will be from 10.00am-1.00pm with registration from 9.00am to 10.00am.

In addition, producers are also looking for black and mixed-race male and female singers aged over 18 to portray the iconic stars of the Motown era. They must have fantastic singing voices with dance/movement and acting skills. Auditionees need to prepare two Motown songs with the sheet music (no backing tracks) and will need to bring a CV and recent photograph/headshot. The adult auditions will be from 2.00pm to 5.00pm with registration from 1.00pm to 2.00pm.
