Auditions for our upcoming Halloween-season production of Jack the Ripper: The Whitechapel Musical.
Between August and November of 1888, five prostitutes were brutally murdered in London's Whitechapel district. Their deaths were credited to one killer. With play-by-play accounts constantly published in the local press, the case took on a life of its own, even giving the killer his famous moniker, until after the death of the fifth victim, when the murders mysteriously stopped. The case remains unsolved to this day. This musical is one fictional possibility.
Appointments are requested.

Callback auditions are scheduled for:

Those auditioning are asked to prepare two contrasting song selections, 16-32 bars each, in a contemporary musical theatre style (think Sweeney Todd meets Les Miserables). No rock and roll or traditional Broadway, please. A headshot and resume is appreciated but not required.

There will be eight performances of Jack the Ripper, over two weeks, October 19 through 29, 2017. Rehearsals will be on Sundays and two weekday evenings at first, with more frequency in the last weeks before the performances. We plan to bring a cutting of the show to the EMACT Mini-Festival on Saturday 7 October.
All roles are open. There are roles for six males, five females, and 3-5 actors that are gender flexible. The five female prostitutes are of varying ages. See below for role descriptions, with vocal ranges.
