Spider-Man Musical Casting Call
Remember a year ago there we’re all these crazy news stories that producers were working on a Spider-Man Broadway musical? Julie Taymor directing. Music by Bono and the Edge from U2. A plot that revolves around a Spider Goddess. Yeah, that one.
Well, it looks like it’s going forward. Playbill reported that a reading of the story was scheduled to take place on July 12-13. And now an open casting call has been announced for July 28 at New York City’s Knitting Factory. They’re auditioning three roles:
- Peter Parker: male, age 16-20’s, great rock voice, nerdy with understated sex appeal and a good sense of humor.
- Mary Jane: female, age 16-20’s, girl next door, strong pop/rock singing voice.
- Spider Goddess: female, age 25-35, rock vocals. Sinead O’Connor-type with a Middle Eastern /Bulgarian/Greek/ twist. Foreign, world music types are great, foreign accents are great. All ethnicities will be considered.
Think you have what it takes? Bring headshot, resume, and sheet music of 16 bars of a pop/rock song that shows your range. For more info e-mail: spidermancasting [at] gmail [dot] com
