Motown the Musical calls for open auditions


Motown the Musical is opening at the Fisher Theatre Oct. 21, running through Nov. 16. And while the cast for this run is already set, the musical's producers will host open auditions for both the broadway production and national tour while they're in town.

Detroiters between the ages of 8 and 13 will be able to audition for the roles of young Michael Jackson, Berry Gordy, and Stevie Wonder. They're also looking for African-American men and women between their 20s and 40s with "exceptional" voices. 

The auditions will be held at the famed Motown Museum, perhaps better knowns as Hitsville USA. 

Open call will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 21 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at 2648 W. Grand Blvd., Detroit. 

Actors are asked to bring sheet music for a song of choice from the Motown songbook, a picture, and a resume that includes contact information. The photo and resume should be stapled together. 

An accompanist will be provided.
