New Zealand Actors Will Roll Into Roles

By January 20, 2009

Follow me on:

Andrew Lloyd Webber's Starlight Express will open in Wellington, New Zealand in July 2009, and actors who roll on inlines and quads are seeking roles in the rock musical play, according to an article in the Dominion Post. Rollerblading and rollerskating is essential to anyone who wants a part in this story about a boy's dream that his toy trains come to life and compete to become the champion of the tracks.

The rollerskating choreography is gruelling and will require actors to spend long rehearsal days on skates in outrageous costumes for 10 weeks. But for a skater who is also an actor, this just might be a little piece of heaven. Eight Wellingtonians and twelve other Kiwis have won parts in the play. There is one position left that may be just right for you.
