Beatles show 'Let It Be' to hold open auditions for new cast

Successful auditionees will have the chance to play to packed houses in the West End and across the world as members of the LET IT BE company. Auditions will be held at the Garrick Theatre, London, where the show is currently playing, on 3rd September. Hopefuls are invited to register in person at 9.30am or 1.30pm, when they will be assigned a 5 minute slot to perform a song from The Beatles’ discography. All instruments will be provided. Candidates should prepare songs from the Fab Four’s discography that demonstrate an expert level of musicianship whilst recreating an authentic Beatles’ experience. They will be asked to show off their talents by demonstrating the following according to role:

Bass – Vocal & bass, piano and acoustic guitar

Prepare three songs that demonstrate your ability to accompany yourself on each of your instruments.

Rhythm Guitar – Vocal & guitar and piano

Prepare two songs that demonstrate your ability to accompany yourself on both guitar and piano.

Lead Guitar – Vocal & guitar

Prepare song(s) that demonstrate your ability to recreate the Beatles’ iconic guitar solos as well as accompanying yourself vocally.

Drums – Vocal & drums

The audition panel will be looking for performers who can replicate the iconic sound, style and vocal tone of The Beatles’ themselves. All songs should be performed in the original key.

There is no need to register in advance. No further audition dates are currently scheduled.

Jamie Hendry (Producer) - “LET IT BE celebrates the music of a band known globally for their unique and revolutionary sound, so exceptional musicianship and great vocals are essential. We’re searching for performers who can exactly recreate The Beatles and whisk an audience back in time to the intimate environs of the Cavern Club or the electric heights of Beatlemania. It’s a tougher job than you might imagine.”

LET IT BE established itself as one of the West End’s most popular shows when the production originally opened at the Prince of Wales Theatre in September 2012, before transferring for a year-long run at the Savoy Theatre from January 2013 – February 2014.

Seen by over 800,000 people worldwide, LET IT BE continues to delight audiences across the globe, having recently played in Germany, Japan, Moscow, and on Broadway. And there’s still more to come, with tours scheduled in South East Asia and across Europe as well in the UK.

LET IT BE showcases the music of the world’s most successful rock’n’roll band, in a spectacular theatrical concert charting the band’s meteoric rise from their humble beginnings in Liverpool’s Cavern Club, through the height of Beatlemania, to their later studio masterpieces.

The show is packed with over forty of The Beatles’ greatest hits including: I Wanna Hold Your Hand, Hard Day’s Night, Day Tripper, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, Strawberry Fields, When I’m 64, Twist and Shout, Get Back and many more.

LET IT BE is produced by Jamie Hendry Productions and Annerin Productions.
