Three junior teams of musical theatre performers and one senior team will be needed for this exciting new production.

“Peter Pan” will be staged at The Playhouse, Whitley Bayduring the summer holidays, from Wednesday 5th to Friday 7thAugust, with matinee and evening performances each day. Tech/dress rehearsals will be held on Tuesday 4th August. We do not envisage that any time off school will be needed. Rehearsals will be held mainly on Sundays plus an intensive 3 days 1st-3rd August prior to the production week. Some additional rehearsal may also be called if necessary.
· Youngsters under 16 must be accompanied by a responsible adult to register at 11am prompt. Adults return at 6pm unless their youngsters are unsuccessful in which case you will be telephoned earlier during the afternoon.
· Previous auditions have taken several hours. We have known 300 youngsters arrive in the past and you will appreciate it presents difficulties for even the best run organisation to process and audition such numbers successfully. We do ask that parents/guardians are patient.
· Please do notbring valuables to the audition. We cannot accept responsibility for loss or damage.
