An influx of head-wobbling, Liverpudlian-accented musicians who want to hold your hand and twist and shout are expected at the Garrick Theatre on 3 September, as hit Beatles show Let It Be holds open auditions for new cast members.
The West End success, a musical extravaganza giving audiences a chance to experience the closest thing to a live Beatles concert, featuring a host of the Fab Four’s most popular songs, is looking for new Georges, Pauls, Ringos and Johns to star in London and on tour.
While many of us will gladly serenade friends and loved ones with renditions of Hey Jude or Yellow Submarine after a glass or two of shandy, Let It Be is looking for performers who can play instruments impeccably, sing like superstars and create an authentic Beatles experience for packed audiences night after night.
Auditionees, who need to register at the Garrick Theatre at either 09:30 or 13:30, will have just five minutes to impress a panel of judges with their performance of a track from the Beatles’ back catalogue sung in the original key.
Let It Be, which follows the world’s most acclaimed pop band from their Cavern Club beginnings to the heights of Beatlemania, first burst onto the London stage in 2012, playing at the Prince Of Wales Theatre. Having proved one of London’s most popular nights out it transferred to the Savoy, playing until February 2014.
Earlier this summer it brought toe-tapping songs including Hard Day’s Night, Day Tripper and Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Heart Club Band back to the West End and is booking at the Garrick Theatre until 21 September.
