I thought this was already all done with casting, but I guess not! You'll recall a casting call back in July for a young actor to play a young Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder and Berry Gordy. I guess they didn't find what they were looking for from the submissions they received back then, because in the casting call that follows, it's still listed, along with a few other parts that need to be filled.

All the information you need to know follows below; good luck!:

ROLES WE ARE SEEKING

LITTLE MICHAEL JACKSON/ LITTLE STEVIE WONDER/ YOUNG BERRY GORDY (African-American male, ages 8-11) Must be charismatic and have a great high tenor singing voice, like Michael Jackson in “I Want You Back.” Should also move/dance well.

MARVIN GAYE (African-American male, 20s) to portray the physical and vocal likeness of Marvin Gaye. Must have a fantastic, soaring high tenor singing voice. Should also move/dance well.

SMOKEY ROBINSON (African-American male, 20s) to portray the physical and vocal likeness of Smokey Robinson. Must have a fantastic, soaring high tenor singing voice. Should also move/dance well.

FEMALE SINGERS (African-American, 20s) Attractive with a slender build. Must be 5’4” to 5’8”, move very well and have an amazing pop singing voice to cover Diana Ross and others.
