In this, an American election year, be a part of an exciting satirical musical ripped from the headlines of today, yesterday, and most likely tomorrow. From the writing team behind 'The Witches of Eastwick' and 'Zombie Prom', ‘The Fix’ premiered at the Donmar Warehouse in 1997 and starred John Barrowman and Phillip Quast under the direction of Sam Mendes. A popular presidential candidate is dead, and his power-hungry wife thrusts her son into the political spotlight. Her maniacal scheming is matched by that of her crippled brother-in-law, who will stop at nothing to see the boy elected. Together, the three of them make up one of the most dysfunctional almost-first families this side of real-life US politics

Set against the high drama of a presidential election campaign, this edgy rock musical incorporates a number of musical styles. Geoids are looking for a collection of strong actors who are able to sing, act and move well to bring this fantastic show to life. Lead roles span a number of generations, so we are looking for actors of all ages to audition.

The auditions will be in a workshop style so there is NO NEED TO PREPARE ANYTHING. While you may want to familiarise yourself with the soundtrack you do not need to know a note of the score. You will be split into small groups for: some acting, some movement work, and to be taught a song from the show which you will be invited to perform if you wish to audition for a lead role.
