The Tony award-winning Broadway show opened in 2021 and is now set to open across the pond here in London’s West End. The jukebox musical follows the story of Michael Jackson across over 25 of his biggest hits, as the audience is taken behind-the-scenes in his preparations for the 1992 Dangerous World Tour.
MJ the Musical, which will be directed and choreographed by Royal Ballet Associate Artist Christopher Wheeldon OBE, is set to open on March 6, 2024 at the Prince Edward Theatre. Tickets go on-sale in the UK on Wednesday May 24, 2023 with a fan pre-sale available to sign-up for here.
The show will be holding open auditions across the UK in the search for “exceptional male singers (high tenors with falsetto) who are also strong actors and dancers to portray and cover the lead role.” According to Voice-Online.co.uk, those auditioning will need to prepare a Michael Jackson song or pop song that shows off your voice and range.
Auditionees must bring sheet music alongside a photo and CV stapled together. There will be no stereo playback available, however a pianist will be provided. You must be 18 or older and eligible to work in the UK.
MJ the Musical open auditions will take place on Saturday March 18 at Studio 25 in Manchester, Sunday March 19 at Birmingham Hippodrome and Sunday March 26 at the National Youth Theatre in London.
Registration opens at 10am and closes at 12pm, plus hopeful attendees must be prepared to wait. Rehearsals for the show begin this December ahead of opening night the following March with a contract of one year.
