Royal Caribbean Cruises will be holding open auditions in New York City and London for their production of the hit musical, “Saturday Night Fever”.
The production is seeking to fill, lead, supporting and ensemble roles. The show’s casting directors are seeking actors, singers and dancers to work on board their luxury cruise ships that travel around the world. Auditions will be held at New York City’s Pearl Studios as well as London’s Pineapple Studios in early 2016. The show is also casting for ensemble dancers who are proficient in Ballet and Jazz techniques.
“Saturday Night Fever” is based on Nik Cohn’s 1975 New York Magazine article “Tribal Rites of the New Saturday Night” and Norman Wexler’s 1977 screenplay it inspired, Saturday Night Fever focuses on Tony Manero, a Brooklyn youth whose weekend is spent at the local discotheque. There he luxuriates in the admiration of the crowd and a growing relationship with Stephanie Mangano, and can temporarily forget the realities of his life, including a dead-end job in a paint store.
Tony Manero (Lead – Tenor to A)

Plays 20, extremely beautiful Brooklyn Italian. Projects overconfidence and pretension but is really a simple girl trying to be more than what she came from. Must be genuinely likable. Believable Brooklyn accent. Killer voice and very strong dancer.
