Dancer Maurice Hines will hold auditions for young Philly area dancers for the cast of his new production, Tappin' Thru Life which will premiere Sept. 28 at the Penn's Landing Playhouse.

Hines and his production staff seek youngsters aged 6 to 16 years old with tap dance experience. Candidates will be asked to perform a brief routine as part of the audition process.

Auditions take place Thursday, Aug. 4 At Penn's Landing Playhouse - At The Independence Seaport Museum, 211 S. Columbus Blvd. (At Walnut Street),

Described as "a swinging song and dance musical that celebrates the astonishing showmanship of one of the last great tap dancers of a by-gone era still working today--- Maurice Hines," the show will feature "John and Leo Manzari, a pair of fierce tap dancing siblings reminiscent of a young Maurice and his brother Gregory, with music by the vivacious, all-female Diva Jazz Orchestra."
