The Jakarta Movement of Inspiration (JKTMOVEIN) is looking for performing artists aged 10 to 23 years old to participate in the upcoming Musikal Petulangan Sherina (Sherina's Adventure, The Musical).
Interested talents are required to upload a 30 to 60 second video singing content from Petualangan Sherina's soundtrack on their Instagram account. The online audition requires the participants to include the hashtags #AudisiJKTMOVEIN and #MusikalPetualanganSherina, as well as tag both the community and the musical's Instagram accounts.
Those auditioning for the main characters, Sherina and Sadam, need to add the hashtag #MencariSherina or #MencariSadam.
The online audition runs until Jan. 31 and the chosen ones will be contacted through Instagram's direct messaging system and will have to go through the second round of auditions. Successful applicants will be required to join intensive training prior to the show. However, they will not receive a salary as ticket sales revenue will go to training programs and production.

Founded by Nurul Susantono, JKTMOVEIN is a community that aims to inspire youngsters aged below 25 years old to explore the performing arts scene.
Prior to Musikal Petualangan Sherina, JKTMOVEIN had presented two musical performances, Gemuruh (Thunderous) and Musikal Sekolahan (School Musical).
The community's production manager Dania Najmi told The Jakarta Post via e-mail that they had been wanting to create the Petualangan Sherina musical show, as the film was considered one of the best Indonesian musical movies.
In regards to the upcoming show, the team is supported by movie directors Mira Lesmana and Riri Riza.
Musikal Petualangan Sherina will premiere in September at Gedung Teater Jakarta in Taman Ismail Marzuki, Central Jakarta. (asw)
