Bhangin’ It Casting

Nationwide open call for video submissions

The creative team of Bhangin’ It is currently doing a nationwide search for South Asian dancers/performers that reflect the entire multitudes and shades of the diaspora!

Winner of the Richard Rodgers Award, Bhangin’ It is an exhilarating new musical that celebrates the traditions we inherit from yesterday and those we create for tomorrow. When a young woman finds her identity cannot be defined by checking a box, she sets off on a quest to dance to her own beat. Drawing from competitive Bhangra and mixing it with other Indian and Western dance forms alike, Bhangin’ It is a brash, intoxicating and joyous musical for America today.

Bhangin’ It is a true extravaganza of a variety of dance styles. The musical showcases Bhangra in its many styles along with Bollywood, kathak, hip-hop, jazz, contemporary and other dance forms all set in a collegiate Bhangra environment. For the first time ever you get to see all these amazing dance forms performed with live vocals taking you into the world of true musical theater.” – Choreographer Rujuta Vaidya

In order to break down barriers of traditional theater auditions regardless of whether you are represented by an agent or not, we are inviting you to show us what you’ve got!

This musical showcases various types of South Asian dance and music including but not limited to bhangra to kathak and ghazals to classic songs.
