Company states: “We are looking for a total of 20 cast members. At auditions we will be seeing who works well in a group and who can work with other people. We are looking for versatile, talented performers who will blend well in an ensemble and stand out individually. We are looking for strong potential with passion who have done their research into both the company and the musical.
“As we are a young company, we unfortunately cannot pay our actors just yet. However, not only will you be taking part and performing in one of the best written musicals of all time, but you’ll be performing in the biggest performing arts festival in the world. The Edinburgh Fringe Festival is an indescribable experience and anyone who has ever experienced this will tell you so. The fringe is infectious. While we cannot guarantee any exposure or degree of success for a single actor, our previous productions have been watched by industry professionals and been reviewed by some of the top theatre publications. We have had actors secure agents from our productions in the past and so the sky really is the limit when it comes to the Edinburgh Fringe. For more information please visit: www.etherealtheatre.com.
