Channing Tatum announced today that Magic Mike Live will be holding auditions for the London cast of the hit show.

Tatum took to social media to announce the plans, unveiling the casting website and guidelines for auditionees.

The production is looking for male and female performers for an open-ended run, with auditions being held in the UK (at Pineapple Dance Studios), France (at Studio Bleu 20ème) and Germany (at the On Stage Training Center in Hamburg).

The London auditions, which begin on 25 June, will have an open call for male dancers with the casting process lasting the full week. Casting is by David Grindrod associates.
