Who is in it?
We cast professional actors, many of whom return many times. We will announce the cast of 2019 as soon as we can but you can expect to see some familiar faces coming back!
Chorus Auditions: Sunday 15 September 10am
We're pleased to announce that we'll be holding open chorus auditions for this year's pantomime, Aladdin.
Not only are we on the lookout for chorus members, but we also need two children to play Bibi the Pet Monkey, which is a silent role requiring good acting and movement skills.
Participating in the pantomime includes performing in approximately 27 shows over five weeks.
The auditions are open for those aged between 8-16 years and it is recommend that they have achieved at least a Grade 2 in modern dance and/or ballet. We encourage all who meet these requirements to come along to the audition at The Roses on Sunday 15 September at 10.00am so that we can register everyone and the warm up can start promptly. Participants do not have to prepare anything but should wear loose-fitting, comfortable clothes and suitable footwear.
Aladdin will run from Saturday 30th November to Saturday 4th January 2020, and it is required that all those chosen are 100% committed and are available for all rehearsals after school and at weekends from mid-November, even if they have been in the chorus in previous years, and for the entire duration of the show run.
