Casting call for ‘Rob Ford The Musical’ set for Monday in Toronto

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford is pursued by the media outside city hall in Toronto on March 19, 2014.


TORONTO – Rob Ford impersonators, this is your time to shine.

An open casting call for the upcoming “Rob Ford The Musical: The Birth of a Ford Nation” will be held at Toronto’s Second City Training Center next Monday.

Producers say it’s a “colour blind casting” and that a resemblance to the embattled Toronto mayor isn’t required.

Hopefuls must perform a one-minute comedy monologue and one pop, rock or comedy song. A headshot and resume are also required.

The stage show by Toronto-based Brett McCaig is described as “an unabashed, take-no-prisoners comedy” about Ford’s personal and political journey.

It’s set to open at Toronto’s Historic Factory Theatre on Sept. 16.
