Bendigo Theatre Company is looking to discover the best local talent at auditions for their major production, Wicked: The Musical.

There are 10 shows lined up during October and November, with a production team of more than 30 set to make the show come alive.

The creative team will cast 30 to 40 actors, singers and dancers, with many cameo roles and costume changes to suit every performer.

Individual vocal auditions will be held on Friday, May 31 and Sunday, June 2, with separate dance auditions and call backs if required.

Director Paul Watson lauded the
incredible creative team, including people who have worked on the show professionally before.

“It is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity. It’s only going to be in Bendigo once, and that time is now,” Mr Watson said.

Wicked is a modern classic about the untold story of the witches of the Wizard of Oz, Glinda and Elphaba.

To audition, you must be 16 years or older.

The auditions take place at the Bendigo Theatre Arts Shed, 15-17 Allingham Street, Golden Square.
