We are looking for talented young people who have a strong sense of performance, who aspire to join our show cast for 2023 to attend an audition at the venue on Sunday 13th November.
We are looking for junior children who can sing well and dance too, as well as senior female dancers who are strong in all aspects of dance that can preferably sing as well, albeit not a requisite.
The junior dance auditions will start at 10.30am (doors open 10.00am). The minimum age is 6 and whilst there is no maximum age, there is a strict maximum height of 4ft 9ins (144.5cm’s). 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 19 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 unavailable dates.
All the children will need to sing first, and the production team are providing the backing track for the song, Rainbow Connection. You will also receive a copy of the lyrics and the original track for reference.
We can email upon request, with the aforementioned information, alternatively PLEASE SEE BELOW FOR LINKS- CLICK TO DOWNLOAD DIRECTLY.
After the vocal audition the choreographer will teach a short routine, that the children will be asked to perform in groups, so please be dressed to dance and bring jazz shoes or trainers.
For the senior dancer’s audition, the producer is looking for girls aged 15+, all must have a strong standard in all aspects of dance. Ballet and jazz shoes/trainers will be needed for this audition. Routines will be set in commercial dance and lyrical ballet. The girls should all be between 5ft 3ins (160cms)- 5ft 10ins (178cms). 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.
Everyone that wishes to audition will need to fill in a registration form and the seniors are required to register their attendance prior to the audition date. All the paperwork, is available from the Box Office, can be emailed on request, or you can click on this link to download the documents, which include the show dates and rehearsal schedules for the juniors.
