Wannabe West End stars line up for 42nd Street

Hundreds of stars of the stage lined the pavement this morning as auditions kicked off for 42nd Street in the West End.

The doors opened at London's Theatre Royal Drury Lane on Monday to an enormous queue of auditionees hoping to star in the capital's latest production of the hit musical.

Some brought hair rollers and tap shoes to get into character for the show, based on the 1933 Warner Brothers movie about an ambitious Broadway actress who finally gets her chance to take centre stage when a leading lady is injured.

The first leg of open auditions for the show invited performers to take part in group numbers on the stage after signing up.
