Young stars needed for SHP Panto

April 10, 2017

Calling all budding stars… South Hill Park needs you to join the kids cast of its famous Christmas pantomime.

If you’re aged between seven and 18 years and love singing, acting and dancing then we would love to see you come and audition for our 2017 Christmas show Beauty and the Beast.

After the success of last year’s Cinderella, we are delighted to welcome back Director Adam Stafford (James and the Giant Peach, Just So and Oliver!) to the team for our Christmas show. Also returning are our pantomime regulars, Ann Ogden as the Choreographer and Tim Cumper as the Musical Director.

We are looking for flexible young performers who will dance, sing and act in this exciting new pantomime! We need to put together three teams of 10-12 versatile young people making a total of up to 36! Wow, that’s a lot! Specifically, we are looking for performers with strong acting, singing and dance ability from aged seven to 18 years.

WHEN?

There will be six audition slots running over one weekend lasting one and a half hours each:

  • Saturday 24th June: Slots at 11.00am-12.30pm AND 14.00am- 15.30pm AND 4pm-5.30pm
  • Sunday 25th June: Slots at 11.00am-12.30pm AND 14.00am-15.30pm AND 4pm-5.30pm
WHERE?

South Hill Park Arts Centre, Recital Room on the Saturday and Garden Room on the Sunday.

WHO?

Boys or girls aged between seven and 18 years.

HOW?

We can see 20 young people in each slot so please book in advance for a time that is convenient to you. You can book a slot at the South Hill Park Box Office or by calling 01344 484123.

Please note that there is a £5 administration fee, and this must be paid before the audition day. This fee can be paid for when booking your time slot.

You will also need to fill out an audition registration form which will be emailed to you along with an FAQ sheet once you have booked an audition time with box office.

Please make sure that you attach a passport-sized photo with the form – this is to help us remember you after this audition.

Make sure you wear clothes that are suitable for dancing and physical movement!

No outdoor shoes or trainers are allowed in the audition room, but you can audition in bare feet.

Bring a bottle of water. The auditions are very energetic and you will get hot and thirsty

WHAT?

1) What time do I need to arrive?

Please arrive at least 20 minutes before your slot begins. This will give us enough time to register your arrival and to make sure you have a filled in the registration form.

2) What do I need to bring with me?

You will need comfortable clothes and shoes. Dance shoes are perfect if you have them. If you are cast, you will be expected to purchase a pair of jazz shoes before the rehearsal process starts.

3) What will I do during the auditions?

We are asking you to prepare a short monologue, speech or poem to perform as part of the audition. It should be around 30 seconds long. Adam would also like you all to come with three jokes each to tell the audition panel!

You will also be taught a short piece of dance by Ann, the choreographer, and will have an opportunity to sing a song with Tim, the Musical Director.

If you have any queries do not hesitate to contact Production Manager Joe Malyan on joe.malyan@nullsouthhillpark.org.uk

Hope to see you there!
