AUDITIONS, Junior and Senior cast for 2017 season

Babbacombe Theatre are putting out a call to all talented young people who aspire to perform, to attend an audition for the 2017 season on Sunday 13th November. We are looking for junior boys and girls who can sing and dance well and female dancers who are strong in all aspects of dance that preferably can sing well to.

The junior dance auditions will start at 10.30am (doors open 10am). The minimum age is 6 and whilst there is no maximum age, there is a strict maximum height of 4ft 9ins. The production team are looking for 4 teams of children, who will alternate performances throughout the year from February – October. There will be up to 22 performance dates per team; however, children with other commitments, including holidays, can be accommodated. It is suggested you come to the audition with the dates you know your child will be unavailable, so once the selection process has been done, the children’s performance schedule can be worked to accommodate any absences.

All the children will need to sing and will need to bring their own backing track. After the vocal audition our Choreographer, Sadie Oliver will teach a couple of short routines, that all will need to perform in groups, so please be dressed to dance and bring ballet and jazz shoes.

The senior dance auditions are for girls aged 15+, all must have a strong standard in all aspects of dance, so ballet, tap and jazz shoes, will be needed for this audition. Routines will be set for all three genres. The girls should all be between 5ft 2ins -5ft 9ins. It is preferred the dancers have a good singing voice and those wishing to audition are invited to sing if they choose to do so, although it is not essential. It’s worth noting those wanting to sing will need to provide their own backing tracks. Dancers will need to be at the venue for 11.30am.

Juniors and dancers will need to fill in a registration form, they can be done on the day alternatively, you can download here or pop into the theatre to collect one from the box office.

Any one wanting to make enquiries regarding the auditions should contact Sharon Waring during office hours on 01803 322233
