Chance for young performers to star in panto

Posted onPosted on 8th May

This year’s Nottingham Playhouse pantomime, Jack and the Beanstalk, is looking for young performers from  the area to form the young chorus who will perform alongside the professional actors in the panto.

To apply, people must be aged between 9 and 15 on 4th November this year and be available for rehearsals and performances in Nottingham from 4th November to 18th January 2025. No prior performing experience is needed, just lots of enthusiasm, energy, and commitment.

A workshop audition will be held on Saturday, 1st June to select two teams of six young people, plus two reserves. The closing date to apply is Monday, 13th May at 5pm.

Adam Penford, artistic director, said:  “The young chorus has been an integral part of the Playhouse panto for decades. In recent years, we’ve made it more accessible by holding open auditions and found more roles for them to perform within the production. We have lots of fun on the open audition day itself. There’s so much talent across the region and it’s always really tough deciding on the final selection. You don’t need lots of stage experience for this, it’s more important that we see your energy and enthusiasm.”

Nottingham Playhouse welcomes applications from young people with access requirements, which can be detailed as part of the application. For further information and details on how to apply, visit the website.
