WHO ARE WE LOOKING FOR?

We are committed to diverse, inclusive casting and open to performers without regard to age, sexual orientation or gender identity. We are keen to see performers of all ethnicities for this project.

MAX - playing age - early 20's

A star in the making!

Energetic fireball with private yet deep dreams of owning and producing the most exciting circus of her generation. Outstanding singer, dancer, physical comedienne. The consummate ringmaster in the making. A very charismatic performer, able to communicate her life without language using just music, facial expression and physical storytelling. Vocal range - Soprano/Belter, needs to be comfortable with singing in a contemporary pop style and lead the company (e.g. Kelly Clarkson, Mariah Carey, Pink, Alicia Keys, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus)

JT - playing age 40's/50's

Larger than life quintessential Master of Ceremonies. Classic song and dance showman. A headlining star of his own circus, once upon a time… Must be able to take us from ambiguity to absolute winning charm and then to deviousness. The most loveable and charming Faust. Vocal range - Tenor/High baritone - needs to have gravitas, charisma, and weight in their vocal delivery (e.g. Billy Joel, Elton John, Luther Vandross, Robbie Williams, Mick Jagger, George Michael).

MALE/FEMALE/NON-BINARY SINGERS - playing age 18 to 60

A cavalcade of very interesting characters of varying ages, genders and ethnicities. The “Greek Chorus” in the show, they are also soloists in their own right. Must be a natural performer and actor with a powerhouse voice to blow down the house. (Characters will include tarot reader, snake charmer, boxer, carnival barker) Vocal Abilities - These circus singers are first and foremost vocalists able to sing as a lead soloist, as well as work as an ensemble and harmonise. They need to be fluent and confident singers with a versatile range (both high AND low). All styles are welcome Opera/RnB/Pop/Gospel/Rock. We are looking for singers who can put their own interpretation onto the song. The ability to belt and/or riff is a bonus.

MALE/FEMALE/NON-BINARY DANCERS - playing age 18 to 40

We're looking for versatile dancers with great technique & storytelling who have the vocabulary to adapt easily to an assortment of dance genres. Must be able to learn choreography quickly and have some acting abilities. Circus skills, gymnastics, and tumbling are a bonus but not a deal breaker.
