Mixed Voice is presenting the musical - a modern take on Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet - at Norwich Playhouse from August 23 to 27, having previously performed shows including Rent, Godspell and Grease.

Director Holly Graham said: 'To really pull this one off, we need a very strong male cast to form the Sharks and the Jets. It is often far easier to find talented female musical theatre performers than male, so we have started a massive search for the best men in Norfolk.'

Mixed Voice producer, Anna Goode, added: 'We are a fantastic team at Mixed Voice and the rehearsal process isn't just about putting on a show. We try to develop our performers to ensure that they finish each production a better performer.'

Founded in 2007, Mixed Voice describes itself as an amateur theatre company aiming to bridge the gap between local and West End theatre. People aged 16 or over who can sing, dance and act are invited to audition.
