Spotlight Academy at DUCTAC, Mall of the Emirates is looking for performers to join the cast of its upcoming production - with open auditions to take place on Friday, November 16 (open to anyone aged 12 and up).

Written by Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler, the musical thriller opened on Broadway in 1979 and proved a roaring success, eventually being transferred to the big screen in 2007 with Johnny Depp starring as the infamous ‘Demon Barber of Fleet Street’.

The show in Dubai will take place from April 9 to 13 next year in DUCTAC’s Centrepoint Theatre, preceded by intensive rehearsals and workshops on weekends in March.

Local performers will appear alongside professionals from the UK and USA for the show, which follows Spotlight Academy’s recent rendition of Cats over the summer. No previous experience is necessary.
