Dancer Auditions to perform in Dick Whittington
Harrogate Theatre is looking for 12 chorus dancers for our traditional family pantomime, Dick Whittington, 22nd November – 14 January.
Age 13 – 17? Love to dance? Want to take part in our pantomime?
Harrogate Theatre is looking for 12 chorus dancers to take part in our traditional family pantomime, Dick Whittington, this Christmas. Our three dancer teams will take part in performances over the festive season. Whilst we are unable to offer any payment to pantomime dancers this is an excellent opportunity to be part of a professional performing company and learn about the commitment and skill required to be a performer.
Our choreographer, David Lee, will be holding auditions on Saturday 15th July 1.30pm-4pm at St Peters Church Hall. We warmly welcome young people (of all gender identities) who are aged 13 – 17 and who have the ability to dance musical theatre jazz to audition.
Please make sure you can answer ‘yes’ to the following if you would like to audition:
- I am 13 years old or over on 22 November 2023 and under 18 years old on 14 January 2024.
- I am able to attend rehearsals from 23 October – 13 November (will include some Saturday mornings).
- I am able to attend technical and dress rehearsals from 13 November – 21 November. This will involve taking time off school.
- I am able to perform on various dates from 21 November 2023 to 14 January 2024 (approx. 25 performances). This will involve taking time off school and performing over the Christmas and New Year holidays (not Christmas Day or New Year’s Day).
- I take full responsibility for getting myself to and from all rehearsals and performances.
- I am able to pick up choreography quickly.
You will be required to take time off school so 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.Back to all News
