    Singers, start practicing your scales.

    Open auditions for the national tour of "American Idiot," the Tony Award-nominated musical on Broadway, will be held on Saturday, March 5, at the Debbie Reynolds Studio in North HollywoodThe play's Facebook page calls for male and female rock singers in their 20s:

    "Bring a recent picture and resume and prepare a short rock song. Bring sheet music. Piano accompanist provided. Men who play the guitar should bring one and accompany themselves."

    "American Idiot" features songs by the band Green Day and the lyrics of its lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong. It premiered at the Berkeley Repertory Theatre in 2009 and hit Broadway in 2010.

    Angelenos who want to see the play but don't necessarily want to star in it can catch the show next year during its run at the Center Theatre Group/Ahmanson Theatre from March 14 to April 22, 2012.
