The USF School of Music is the setting for Miami-based Spectacular Stage Inc.’s Tampa Bay area talent search; the dazzling holographic musical comes to the Sun Dome in September.
Tampa, Fla. (April 8, 2014) – The University of South Florida and Tampa Bay communities will have the opportunity to audition at the USF School of Music in Tampa for Spectacular Stage Inc.’s production of “Romeo & Juliet, Eternal Love,” April 23 and 24.
The USF Sun Dome is one of several select venues in North and South America that will feature the holographic spectacular musical that comes to our area Sept. 26 and 27. Spectacular Stage Ins. is also scheduled to present “Aida” in December at the Tampa Bay Times Forum.
The producers are auditioning candidates for a variety of roles for this and potentially more stops on the wider tour. They are looking for English and Spanish-speaking singers with classical or pop backgrounds who also have good acting skills and stage presence. In addition, they must have the ability to read basic sheet music.
Candidates should come equipped with their choices of two songs to sing and a monologue to recite. A pianist will be on hand to accompany the singers with sheet music.
“We’re looking for talent and drive as much as we’re looking for vocal, musical and acting skills,” said Spectacular Stage Inc. President Vincent Genovese. “Rehearsals and preparation will require a lot of energy and determination, so we’re looking for the best of the best Tampa Bay has to offer.”

“This is an exciting chance to participate in an audition leading to the possibility of an international tour,” said USF School of Music Director Karen Bryan. As a local event in which they will receive immediate feedback from individuals involved in the production, this becomes an excellent professional experience for our students.”
Based in Miami, Spectacular Stage Inc., working in partnership with its parent company Uluru Promo, Ltd. of London, is known for its groundbreaking mixtures of computer-generated visual effects and live performance.
“We create live stage entertainment events as well as corporate and commercial presentations and promotional events,” Genovese said. “When ordinary just won’t do, we create imaginative and memorable visuals utilizing the latest multimedia technologies and special effects.”
The auditions will be conducted by Maestro Giuseppe Raffa and Director Sebastian Raffa and are open to both equity and non-equity performers.
“We were very impressed with the talent we encountered with our production in Miami,” said Genovese. “We expect to find extraordinary talent in Tampa Bay as well. So we’re looking forward to seeing what’s in store.”
