Mattel launching open casting call for real life Barbie musical star

UPI News Service, 06/23/2005 

The toymakers at Mattel Inc. are planning an open casting call to find a human Barbie to perform in a live musical to tour North America next spring.

The company announced it has partnered with Clear Channel Entertainment in the production of "Barbie Live in Fairytopia!"

The musical is based on Mattel's successful "Fairytopia" direct-to-video feature starring an animated Barbie, which sold 1.3 million copies.

The musical is scheduled to run for 60 weeks beginning in 2006, the Los Angeles Daily News reported.

But finding someone with a Barbie doll's distinctive busty and long-legged proportions could be difficult, said Mercedes Penney, an independent casting director based in Burbank.

"Like Nicole Kidman with a little more warmth, or someone like Demi Moore when she was around 18, 19," Penney said.
