A pioneer in creating world class live events, Wizcraft International Private Limited will identify some of the most sought after talent among the numerous entries registered online. The shortlisted artists will later be auditioned in cities like Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Kolkata and Dubai by a panel of experts. The chosen artists will be signed as performers for the musical as well as be considered for the park’s daily live entertainment shows.

We are extremely excited to launch this campaign, which will give the selected performers the opportunity to be part of one of the most exciting destinations in the region.”
Situated in Bollywood Parks™ Dubai, the Rajmahal Theatre, home to the spectacular Bollywood musical reflects the exquisiteness of India’s culture and architectural heritage. Envisioned to house one of the most striking Broadway-style themed musicals, the sprawling 60,000-square-foot theatre will feature extravagant Bollywood style music with state-of-the-art LED stage backdrops and spectacular performances.
Commenting on the auditions, Viraf Sarkari, Director of Wizcraft, said, “We have never been let down by the talent that emerges from our country. We are extremely happy that Bollywood Parks™ Dubai chose India to kick-start the auditions for the musical. We will ensure that no talent goes unnoticed and will create a power troop of the best to represent India at the first ever Bollywood-themed park in the World.”
