According to the casting call, the show is looking for performers with “dynamic rock/pop voices including those with experience in bands and as solo performers.”
The announcement also says anyone who thinks they’re qualified is welcome to attend, regardless of experience.
Here are the roles needing filling as well as what the show’s producers are looking for.
Peter Parker – “Male. 16-20’s. Must have a great rock tenor voice. Can be nerdy with understated sex appeal and a good sense of humor.”
Mary Jane – “Female. 16-20’s. Beautiful girl next door. Strong pop/rock singing voice required.”
The production is also looking for “Lead Female Villain,” described as “Female. 25-35 years old. All ethnicities encouraged. Must have an amazing rock voice. Think Sinead O’Connor with a Middle Eastern/Bulgarian/Greek twist. Foreign and/or world music types are great. Foreign accents are great.”
