Audition Notice

Peter Pan by J.M.Barrie

Directed and adapted by Graham Botterill

Scheduled dates 6-10th December at 7.30 pm and 10th December at 2.30 pm

The Play

This pantomime retains the spirit of the book whilst injecting songs, dances and lots of family-friendly comedy. This is brought to you by the team behind last year’s award-winning Alice in Wonderland. There are over 20 speaking parts (10+ junior roles) plus dancers, pirates, Red Indians, children and servants. All the cast will sing and many will be dancing. Many parts may be doubled (such as Mr Darling/Hook and Mrs Darling/Tiger Lily), or even trebled…to keep things interesting. Nanna has been changed from a St Bernard dog to a full-blown pantomime dame – a Great Dame as she says. This gives the character much greater comic potential.

Cheshire Cats by Gail Young

Directed by Marion Millinger

Scheduled Dates: 15-19 November 2022

Auditions: Monday 8th and Wednesday 10th August at 7.30pm at Nomad Theatre

The Play

“Cheshire Cats” follows the antics of a group of friends as they aim to stride across the capital in record time in their decorated bras and posh new trainers, but the problem is that one of the team doesn’t seem to meet the physical criteria!

This London Moonwalk adventure is a cross between a girls’ night out and a real mission to support a cause close to many hearts, with plenty of laughs along the way.
