To be part of the pantomime company you need to be at least 13 years old by 31st October 2016 and be available for ALL rehearsals and performances. Please make sure you can answer ‘yes’ to the following if you would like to audition:

  • I am able to attend technical and dress rehearsals during tech week (week beginning 21st November 2016). This will involve taking time off school.
  • I am able to perform on various dates from 30th November 2016 to 15th January 2017 (approx. 23 performances). This will involve taking time off school and working over the Christmas and New Year holidays.

We are unable to offer any payment to pantomime dancers, but it would give you the chance to be part of a professional company working in a professional theatre.
