(WXYZ) — The Mosaic Youth Theatre of Detroit, in cooperation with the Motown Museum, is hosing auditions for the return of "Now That I Can Dance – Motown 1962," which celebrates Motown's 60th anniversary.

The theatre is taking it back to Motown's early days, and open community auditions will take place on Wednesday, April 24 inside the legendary Studio A inside Motown Museum's Hitsville U.S.A., which is where the Marvelettes and other famous Motown acts auditioned in the early 1960s.

The show tells the story of the Marvelettes and the origin of Motown's first No. 1 record on the pop charts, "Please Mister Postman."
