Breaking News: West End Revival of MISS SAIGON to Hold Auditions in Manila, 11/19-22Cameron Mackintosh and Dong Alegre, the representative of Mackintosh in the Philippines, will hold the Manila auditions for the West End revival of one of Mackintosh's late '80s mega musicals, "Miss Saigon," at Philippine Opera Company's brand-new headquarters, the Opera Haus (3657 Bautista St., Makati City), on Monday, November 19 until Thursday, November 22. 

"'Miss Saigon's' executive producer, director, choreographer, and musical director will be flying in from London to hold auditions for the restaging of the hit musical, which paved the way for Filipino talents such as Lea Salonga, Monique Wilson, and Isay Alvarez, among others to shine on the world stage," said Alegre.

"They will be holding auditions for the role of Kim [a 17-year-old Vietnamese bar girl, originally played by Salonga and Wilson in London].  They are also looking for ensemble cast members," added Alegre.

"Miss Saigon," a sung-through musical, features music by "Les Miserables" collaborators Claude-Michel Schönberg and Alain Boublil, and lyrics by Boublil and "Closer Than Ever's" Richard Maltby, Jr., based on Giacomo Puccini's popular opera "Madame Butterfly."

The most familiar songs from the musical include "Sun and Moon," "Last Night of the World," "The Movie in my Mind," and "American Dream."

Audition requirements will be announced soon.
