Job Listings / Beatles Tribute Show John Lennon Required - International
« on: February 19, 2013, 02:08:51 pm »
Internationally acclaimed touring Beatles theatre show THE MAGIC OF THE BEATLES require a John Lennon (Vocals and Guitar and preferably keyboards) for performances throughout the UK and worldwide.
Live performance experience preferred, but not essential as we will evaluate your potential if you are successful in gaining an invite to an informal audition.
Lennon lookalike qualities would be a bonus, but in the main you must have a good vocal and guitar ability and a great attitude to the overall portrayal of Lennon and be able to be an accomplished "frontman" and actor to pull the role off!
The shows in the UK are theatres, festivals, corporate and private events.
Overseas shows are festivals and live venues and short tours and cruise line short (visiting show) runs.
There is no real age restriction to the position as long as we think that you could fit the bill.
 Due to a major expansion of the shows cast, this will most likely be a full time position, but again options will be discussed with successful applicants by our management team, as will salary etc.
We are also quite happy to discover the next great Lennon impersonator, and in some ways we would prefer that, so even if you have never considered this before, why not give it a go as a total "unknown"!
All successful applicants will be requested to audition within the NEXT FEW WEEKS.
This is a major role and opportunity so serious committed applicants only please!
