After two years of delayed or canceled shows, zoom auditions, and virtual casting, Musical Theatre West will hold the first live, in person auditions of their new season the week of May 10 for their upcoming production of Grease. Auditions and Rehearsals will be held at the MTW’s rehearsal hall: 4350 E 7th Street, Long Beach, CA 90804. Performances will be held at the Carpenter Performing Arts Center: 6200 E Atherton St, Long Beach, CA 90815.
Long Beach, California, is regularly hailed as one of the most culturally diverse cities in the United States, and Musical Theatre West strives to reflect that diversity in all of their productions. That will be particularly true for Grease, in which the cast will represent a typical Long Beach High School. Performers of any gender identity, age, religion, sexual orientation, race/ethnicity, language, physical ability or diverse viewpoint are welcome and encouraged to audition.
All roles are open in the cast of 20, and all actors will be paid. Both union and non-union talent will be considered. MTW is particularly seeking young and energetic talent.
