The musical’s casting director Pippa Ailion said: “Our musical tracks the life of music legend Tina Turner from humble beginnings in Nutbush and we are looking to meet with young and talented girls to play the role of Tina in her formative years.
“If you are black or mixed race, can act and have a fantastic singing voice we want to meet you! Come and join us later this month when we are holding auditions for the opportunity to become a member of our West End company and to tell Tina’s story.”
Last year, Turner announced Adrienne Warren would play the title role in the musical, making her West End debut in the process. Full adult casting for the show has been announced.
