So you wanna be a star?

Now’s your chance to partake in the upcoming Miami musical On Your Feet! Auditions start at 2:30 p.m. Thursday at Florida International University’s Wertheim Performing Arts Center, 10910 SW 17th St. Sign in a half hour before, until 4:30 p.m.

Producers are seeking talent to play the lead — Gloria Estefan, on whose life story the play is based. You must be between 20 and 30, a good actress, fluent in Spanish and sing well (naturally). They’re also looking for an actor to play her husband, Emilio Estefan. Candidates should be between 30 and 40, and have leading man charisma. Obvio: Speak fluent Spanish and carry a tune. There are other supporting parts available as well.

As for where the production will eventually be staged: Parts will cast first then the show will go on the road. It may end up at a venue like the Arsht Center, but nothing has been announced.
