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.
