Calling all Gleeks

Published on May 11th 2010.

Calling all Gleeks

You'll either love it or hate it, but none of us can escape Glee. Since its UK premiere in January, the American comedy musical has developed a huge cult following. The first episode following the series' mid-season break premiered in the UK on April 19 and was watched by nearly 1.6 million of us. Those who have continued to watch the show, week after week, have even named themselves 'Gleeks'.

Glee fans across the North West are being invited to attend X Factor-style auditions to bag a lead in new theatre production Don't Stop Believing – A Concert for Gleeks.

If you were nodding because you are one of these self-confessed Gleeks, we could be about to make your TV fantasy a reality...

Glee fans across the North West are being invited to attend X Factor-style auditions to bag a lead in new theatre production Don't Stop Believing – A Concert for Gleeks.

The winner will join a professional production and perform hit songs including ‘Proud Mary’ and ‘Gold Digger’ at the Palace Theatre in July with proceeds being donated to Christies Manchester.

Auditions will take place in the Pump Yard across two consecutive weekends between 12noon and 4pm on Saturday 22 May and Saturday 29 May, followed by a grand final on Sunday 30 May, where the best of the best will be judged by a panel.

Competitors should sing their favourite track from the series, either solo or as a duet, to be considered for the chance of a lead in the show of their dreams.As well as having a Palace Theatre production under their belt, the winner will benefit from working with a professional band and a talented cast of professional singers and dancers.
