AUDITIONS: Hamilton Australia, the production of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s award-winning and critically-acclaimed musical in the Land Down Under, has announced its casting call for interested and capable artists who would want to join the Company of Hamilton for 2022.
In an Instagram post released Saturday, Hamilton Australia said it is seeking highly skilled artists to join the production who could perform the roles of offstage cover, onstage dance ensemble, and offstage dance swing.
The offstage cover role may include covering the characters Eliza, Angelica, and Peggy/Maria. Artists auditioning for the role must be accomplished singers/actors who can rap and move extremely well.
Artists who are applying for the roles of onstage dance ensemble and offstage dance swing, meanwhile, must be accomplished dancers who are well-versed in all forms of contemporary dance to an extremely high standard and must be able to sing very well.
As Hamilton is a musical about the establishment and early history of the U.S., which involved the participation of various races and backgrounds, Hamilton Australia is strongly encouraging artists of all ethnicities, genders, gender expressions, and neurodiversities to join the casting call. It added that Michael Cassel Group is recognizing the importance of casting that empowers and respects historically marginalized communities.
Interested parties must respond to the call by sending an email to casting.michaelcassel.com to express their interest. The email response should include current curriculum vitae and headshot, as well as information about vocal range, height and city of residence. Artists must also have the legal right to work in Australia and be available for rehearsals starting December.
All applications will be reviewed by the creative and casting teams. Qualified applicants will receive an invitation and will be contacted to proceed to the next phase of the audition.
The deadline for the submission of applications is Oct. 13, Wednesday, at 5:00 PM Australian Eastern Daylight Time.
