Open Casting Calls to Take Place in Chicago, New York and Los Angeles in Search of the New Romantic Couple Sandy Dumbrowski and Danny Zuko As Featured in Legendary Musical
GREASE is the word in October and November when NBC begins its search for the romantic lead roles of its new talent competition series "You′re the One That I Want." Open calls will take place in Chicago, New York and Los Angeles for a chance to star in the new Broadway production of GREASE which will debut in June 2007.
Casting producers are seeking individuals 18 years of age and older with singing, acting and dancing abilities. Candidates are asked to be prepared with two songs: one from a selected list of GREASE songs and the second can be any non-GREASE song of their choice. Prospective participants can visit NBC.com for further details and a complete list of approved GREASE songs -- including some other suggestions from the era.
The first to arrive in line will be given priority wristbands and guaranteed to be seen by the casting producers; however, those not receiving wristbands will be allowed to audition if time allows (access dependent upon location turnout).
