The Shanghai Drama Arts Center has opened casting for a good-looking white male actor with some stage experience and basic Chinese language skills.
Casting is for the new Chinese play “Perfume” about a French perfumer and Buddhist scholar who creates a love potion called “The Only.” He considers perfume to be the universal valentine.
It is the first time the center has sought Caucasian performers. It has 170 actors, all Chinese.
Auditions will be held case by case through end of February. The center is seeking actors from 30 to 50 years old.
Rehearsals will be held from late February through April 9. Four performances will be staged in Shanghai, beginning April 10. The company will then tour China.
