Cinderella Dance Auditions!

We’re Looking For Pantomime Dancers!

Harrogate Theatre is looking for 16 chorus dancers to bring the party to the ball in our traditional family pantomime, Cinderella, this Christmas.

Our four dancing teams will take part in performances over the festive season. This will involve missing some school (boo, hiss!) but you will be part of Harrogate’s most magical festive celebration.

This is an excellent opportunity to be part of a professional performing company and learn about the commitment required to be a performer.  We are unable to offer any payment to pantomime dancers, but this is a wonderful experience that you will never forget!

Our choreographer, David Lee, will be holding auditions on Sunday 19 September 10am – 12noon at Harrogate High Sports Hall. We warmly welcome young people (of all gender identities) who are aged 13 – 17.

To be seen, please email a completed application form and attach a photograph by Friday 17th September to [email protected]

Download the application form HERE.

Please make sure you can answer ‘yes’ to the following if you would like to audition:

  • I am 13 years old or over on 24 November 2021 and under 18 years old on 16 January 2022.
  • I am able to attend rehearsals from 25 October – 14 November (will include some Saturday mornings).
  • I am able to attend technical and dress rehearsals during tech week from 15 November – 24 November. This will involve taking time off school.
  • I am able to perform on various dates from 24 November 2021 to 16 January 2022 (approx. 19 performances). This will involve taking time off school and performing over the Christmas and New Year holidays.
  • I take full responsibility for getting myself to and from all rehearsals and performances.
  • I agree to daily lateral flow tests during rehearsals and then in advance of each performance you are in.
  • I am able to pick up choreography quickly.


Please be aware that you will be required to take time off school so please check this won’t be a problem before you audition. You may also need to take time off from any extracurricular activities. Being part of the Harrogate Theatre Pantomime Company is a wonderful experience and lots of fun, but it does require a serious commitment from you and your family.


*Please note access to the stage and around the theatre is by stairs only.
