San Francisco producer Jo Schuman Silver held auditions for the infamous Beach Blanket Babylon this weekend.

It was an open call for anyone who thought they had the chops to perform in the "world’s longest running musical revue."

The auditions were this Saturday starting at noon at Club Fugazi. No appointment was necessary.  

Singers were asked to belt out one ballad and one up-tempo number.

If you get the gig, shows are every Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. There are also Sunday matinees at 2 p.m. and 5 p.m.

Babylon managers said multiple roles are available starting in January 2013.

Steve Silver's Beach Blanket Babylon is the longest running musical revue in theatre history. Hailed as “a constant cascade of showstoppers” by the San Francisco Chronicle, Beach Blanket Babylon follows Snow White as she takes a fast-paced journey around the world in search of her “Prince Charming.”  Along the way she encounters a star-studded, ever-changing line-up of hilarious pop-culture characters, including Lady Gaga, Michael Phelps, President Barack & Michelle Obama, Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, Justin Bieber, Nicki Minaj, The San Francisco Giants, Prince William, Kate Middleton and the Queen of England, Hilary & Bill Clinton, Oprah Winfrey, The Cast of “Glee,” Nancy Pelosi, Madonna, Michael Jackson, Adele and Tom Cruise & Katie Holmes.
