Auditions have been announced for the West End production of Lin-Manuel Miranda's musical Hamilton.

In a notice posted on the show's official Facebook page, those interested are requested to register their interest by sending a current photo and CV to [email protected]

Male and female auditionees in their 20s and 30s are sought from all ethnic backgrounds. The production is looking for singers who can rap or hip-hop dancers.

The post says that artists must be available from 8 October 2018 for a one-year contract – hinting at an inevitable extension for the hit musical.

Reflecting Miranda's core requirement for the cast of the show to be ethnically diverse, the audition notice says: "While artists of all ethnicities will be considered for the production, it is an intrinsic requirement of the show for the majority of the company to reflect a range of BAME backgrounds."

Miranda's hip-hop musical opened at the Victoria Palace Theatre in December to a raft of five-star reviews, including from our critic Sarah Crompton who said: "It is one of those rare shows where each part clicks perfectly into every other."

Hamilton is currently booking at the Victoria Palace Theatre until 30 June 2018.
