Calling all aspiring performers

Calling all talented singers! MTJ Productions are looking for aspiring musical theatre performers to join the already star-studded cast of ‘West End Story’.

The performance which takes place at Shrewsbury’s Theatre Severn on July 8 features performers such as James Humphreys (Opera Boys) Rebecca Eastham, (Emmerdale), Laura Coard, (Nancy in Oliver), CiCi Howells (Saturday Night Fever) and other seasoned professionals including local man Michael Jenkins, who also produces this production.

Michael is looking to recruit 10 performers to make up the vibrant ensemble that will support the main cast throughout the glittering performance.

The successful singers will rehearse and perform some the nation’s favourite musical theatre hits, including numbers from the much-loved Lés Mis, Carousel and 9 to 5 along side a full orchestra.

West End Story has already impressed audiences up and down the nation, most recently in the heart of Manchester, where the production made its Northern debut. After a successful run in Shrewsbury last year the production returns with yet another impressive line-up of talent.

Speaking ahead of the auditions, Michael said: “I am fully aware that  Shropshire is full of musical talent, as many professional companies have started up in the county, but with this ensemble I really want to provide an opportunity for people who are trying to break into the industry.

“I am looking for 10 performers to join the cast in what will be a very lively performance, the kind of people we are looking for are those who have the aspiration to work in the field and would benefit from gaining professional experience.”

To be in with the chance of joining the cast, you need to be between 18 and 21 years old, and be available to attend an audition at Theatre Severn on the 13th of June between 7pm – 9pm.
