Calling all Grade 5-11 students who have strong acting, singing and dancing abilities - July 23 marks the last chance to audition for the theatre rock musical Galaxy Rock!, Rising Star Academy Productions’ 2011 Youth Theatre production.

A strong acting, singing and dancing cast of 30 to 35 performers is required and the audition is open to all students from Grade 5 - Grade 11. All attending must bring a resume with headshots, prepare a 1 minute monologue, 1 minute dance and 1 minute song. The song must be sung unaccompanied.

Whilst not every part requires skills in all the above performance areas, it is important for the panel to get an idea of the all-round ability of each performer before casting.

Auditions will be held from 13h00 on July 23 at the Westville Theatre Club, Attercliffe Road Westville, Durban.

Rehearsal attendance is compulsory. Rehearsals will take place every Saturday until October 29 at Westville Senior Primary School. A final tech and dress rehearsals will be held at the performance venue.

The show will be staged at Seabrooke's Theatre, Durban from November 9 to 13. To confirm attendance at the auditions or for more information, contact Rising Star Productions Director Andrea Nel on 082 994 0984 or email:
