This is a reminder that we are about to audition for cast members for this year’s glittering panto – Cinderella by Ben Crocker. The dates of the show will the 27th, 28th and 30th of November at the Waterman’s Theatre in Brentford. Please note: this year we are doing a show on the Wednesday night and not on the Friday night as we usually do.
You are welcome to come and read through the script with us on SUNDAY 23rd JUNE at 2.30pm at the Mission Hall (TW8 0SD)
AUDITIONS for main speaking roles are on the 30th June at 2.30pm also at the Mission Hall. Don’t worry if you have not auditioned before. It will just involve reading a character’s lines in front of Alan (the director) and probably Jennie (producer) – it’s not too scary, so please don’t be put off ?
List of characters: Fairy Godmother, Dandini, Prince Charming, Buttons, Baron Hardup, Dumpling (A pantomime horse), Lady Devilia Hardup, Cinderella, Snitch (Broker’s Man), Snatch (Broker’s Man), Cheryl (Ugly sister), Beryl (Ugly sister), Major Domo, Chorus of Villagers, Animals, Palace Guests, Henchmen, Spiders etc.
If you do not want a main speaking role, but to be in the chorus or help backstage, you do not need to audition but come to sign up on the 8th of September when rehearsals start (2.30pm Mission Hall). I will let you know more details of this nearer the time.
Please let me know if you are interested in taking part but can’t come to the auditions because we may be able to fit around you. We want to be able to audition all those who want to do it.
Please spread the word to anyone you think might be interested in joining us – everyone is welcome over the age of 5. Also remember we love to have people who want to help backstage as well!
I look forward to seeing you soon.
Penny – Chair of St Faith’s Players
