Wanted: Webslingers who can carry a tune

| No Comments


Can you climb walls? Do you have spidey sense? Do you look really hot in webbed, red tights? And, really, can you sing through that mask?

Actually, none of these qualities are required for the open casting call May 7 in Chicago for the new Broadway musical “SPIDER-MAN Turn Off The Dark,” directed by Julie Taymor (“Across The Universe,” “Frida,” “The Lion King on Broadway”) and featuring music and lyrics by U2's Bono and The Edge.

The production company is looking for principals and understudies for the roles of Peter Parker, Mary Jane and one Female Lead Villian. Rock/pop voices are a plus. Regardless of experience, however, anyone who thinks they might be qualified is encouraged to audition. All interested people should bring a snapshot or photo of themselves and a brief pop/rock or rock song to sing. No accompanist or audio equipment will be provided.

The Chicago location hasn't been set yet. For more information, updated casting call information, or if you can’t attend any of the above casting calls, e-mail here or visit the site.
