Welcome to The Choir Of Man – the best pub concert you’ve ever been to...
The Choir of Man was the runway hit of the Edinburgh Fringe 2017 and voted the overall best show (“Pick of the Fringe”) at the Adelaide Fringe Festival 2018. This show is 60 minutes of unadulterated entertainment that combines high energy dance, live music and foot stomping choreography with the incredible talent of 9 ordinary guys who perform everything from sing-along classics to classic rock.

Imagine the greatest pub gig you’ve ever been to and multiply it by 10 and you’ll still be nowhere near the fun that this show exudes throughout. Featuring pub tunes, folk, rock, choral and opera numbers, the 9 guys showcase music that has wide appeal. The cast features world class tap dancers, singers, instrumentalists, dancers and poets, ensuring that there is something for everyone in this joyous and uplifting show for all ages.

Not only is the concert set in a pub, but it has a real working bar from which the cast will pull pints and invite audience members to get up close and personal with the show – witnessing the action from chairs and tables among the guys – come ready to drink in the action!

***To complete the casting we are looking for the following roles ONLY *****

  • We actively encourage applications from performers of all ethnicities or heritages, and of all shapes and sizes.
  • Please note that some roles require instrumental skills – please highlight these on your applications.
  • All performers will require excellent singing voices and an enjoyment of and ability to sustain harmonies.

-PIANO-MAN
Piano man has the playing skills of Rachmaninov and the drinking skills of Rab C Nesbitt. Enjoys showing off on the piano when the time is right, but otherwise is happy left to his pint.
BARITONE – BOTTOM F TO TOP F
OUTSTANDING PIANO SKILLS – grade 8 level or equivalent skill. Must be able to pick up songs very quickly and improvise well.

-REHEARSAL SWING :
NCL have a really excellent system where they have Rehearsals Swings for their book shows. The performers are only initially contracted for rehearsals in Tampa, but then can be called on should someone need to leave the contract early. They do not have to commit initially to anything other than the rehearsal dates (although they should not take these contracts if they are definitely not available for dates beyond rehearsals). It means they can be cleared with visas, medicals etc so are available to come on board at short notice. It does not stop them taking other contracts elsewhere. It also means they could be available for other productions of the show in the future. Please contact us if you require further information.
This performer needs to cover these roles :
CASANOVA
Casanova is the good looking heartthrob of the group who can equally belt out “Welcome To The Jungle” but also shows his sensitive side singing Adele’s “Hello”. He likes to play the macho part but has a soft sensitive side. He needs soaring and consistent high notes. The joker is the heart and soul of the pub – always quick to crack a joke, tease a mate or pretend to spill a drink on the audience – he’s just great fun to be around. He has a great pop/rock voice.
HIGH TENOR – BELT TO TOP B
BASIC GUITAR
and
THE JOKER
The joker is the heart and soul of the pub – always quick to crack a joke, tease a mate or pretend to spill a drink on the audience – he’s just great fun to be around. He has a great pop/rock voice.
HIGH TENOR – BELT TO TOP A
GOOD GUITAR SKILLS - able to pick or strum. BASIC PIANO SKILLS (competent to play chords along with a song). Ability to play or learn basic Ukelele and/or basic banjo.
