The most anticipated new musical of 2019 will open in the Harbour City in January, with auditions well under way for the role of Charlie.

Craig Donnell, the show’s Australian producer, admits it’s a challenging part, saying, “it’s a big sing, it’s acting, it’s dancing. We really do need kids who are a triple threat.”

Check out the talent vying for the lead role. Expect to see them on stage early next year!

And if you’ve been living under a rock your whole life and don’t understand what the fuss is about, here’s a teaser of what to expect.
