Wanna sing? Wanna dance?

Eastwood Entertainers are looking for new cast members for their production of the hit London and Broadway musical 42nd Street.

Last chance auditions for a place in the cast are at Woodfarm High School on Tuesday (January 20) at 7.30pm

Experienced tappers and beginners alike are welcome to audition.

Based on the 1933 movie about auditions and the production of a new stage show Pretty Lady, the show 42nd Street mimics its own storyline.

Production organiser Vicki Steven told The Extra: “We need more members and would like to encourage more men on to the stage, particularly as this is such a big production with some great tap numbers for the chorus.

“We’re looking for people who can sing and dance but also who can adopt the strong personalities of the lead characters.

“Probably the most fun to play would be prima donna Dorothy who sees young Peggy as a threat to the fading actress’ star status.”

Eastwood Entertainers is an amateur dramatics company based on the southside.

Vicki said: “The company was established in 1974 as a young mothers group. While we’ve grown in stature since then to become a large and successful company, we have managed to retain that ‘family feeling’ and a sense of community spirit.”
