Motown the Musical, a new tuner that has plans to hit Broadway in the spring of 2013, is now casting for a young African-American actor (between the ages of 8 and 11) to portray the young Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, and Berry Gordy. To take on these three iconic roles, the show is searching for a charismatic performer who has “a phenomenal high tenor singing voice, [has] rhythm and can move and sound like Michael Jackson in his Jackson 5 days.”
Motown the Musical is about the legendary Motown records label and its founder, Berry Gordy, Jr. Gordy himself is writing the book to the musical, and the songs will be from Motown’s incredible catalog. The show is expected to include hits that were made famous by such artists as Marvin Gaye, Smokey Robinson and The Miracles, Diana Ross and The Supremes, The Temptations, and of course Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson & The Jackson Five.
Talented youngsters interested in being considered for the part in this Broadway-bound musical can audition by video. More info is available at www.motownthemusical.com/Casting.
