Gary Barlow and Tim Firth looking for top talent

SEARCH FOR A STAR

Gary Barlow and Tim Firth’s new musical THE GIRLS, based on Calendar Girls, opens this November with its world premiere in Leeds and they are looking for a 17 year-old actor to play the son of Miss September; Tommo is described as ‘a great lad – a sportsman, good looking, cocky and girl mad!’

The auditions, which will be held on Wednesday 17 June at Leeds Grand Theatre, will be taken by the show’s director, Roger Haines, and its producer, David Pugh. The first auditions will be filmed for Gary and Tim to watch and select actors for a second audition.

David Pugh, the multi award-winning West End and Broadway producer, whose shows include EQUUS starring Daniel Radcliffe, said, “This is an incredible opportunity for a young actor to play such a smashing part that Tim and Gary have written in this wonderful new musical.”

Gary and Tim said, “We want a proper Northerner to play this role and where better to look than Leeds and Manchester where there is such an enormous wealth of talent – best of luck lads!

THE GIRLS is inspired by the true story of a group of ladies, who decide to appear nude for a Women’s Institute calendar in order to raise funds to buy a settee for their local hospital, in memory of one of their husbands. This musical comedy shows life in their Yorkshire village, how it happened, the effect on husbands, sons and daughters, and how a group of ordinary ladies achieved something extraordinary.
