Beauty and the Beast Dance Auditions

Open auditions to be held on Saturday 16 September at 2:30pm

Harrogate Theatre is looking for 3 mixed teams of girls and boys to take part in our traditional family pantomime, Beauty and the Beast, as chorus dancers. To be part of the pantomime company you need to be at least 13 years old by 6 December 2017 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 at least 13 years old by 6 December 2017 and under the age of 18 on 21 January 2018.

  • I am able to attend rehearsals from 6 November to 25 November 2017 (4:30pm-7:30pm Mon to Fri and some Sat mornings) and I am prepared to work longer hours if necessary.

  • I am able to attend technical and dress rehearsals during tech week (week beginning 27 November 2017). This will involve taking time off school.

  • I am able to perform on various dates from 6 December 2017 to 21 January 2018 (approx. 23 performances). This will involve taking time off school and working over the Christmas and New Year holidays.

  • I take full responsibility for getting myself to and from all rehearsals and performances.

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.

Sophie Zealand, Choreographer, will be holding auditions for dancers on Saturday 16 September 2017 at 2:30pm at Harrogate Theatre. If you are interested and can answer ‘yes’ to all of the above, please complete the audition form which you can download here or request from our Box Office. Please complete and return the form with a passport sized photo no later than 14 September 2017.

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.

We hope to hear from you very soon!
