Calling all children and imaginative adults! It’s that wonderful time of year when YOU get to be on stage.
In July we will be putting on a new and mixed up rendition of Hansel and Gretel.
We would love to invite anyone who believes in magic to come and audition – So dust off those fairy wands and come and impress us with your singing, dancing and acting. The bigger and crazier the better…
Join us on the 15th of April at the Playhouse in Somerset West. Only the leads need to prepare a song, the ensemble creatures do not need to prepare anything. Please note the time slots and arrive 5 minutes early as there is a form to fill in. Each group will be auditioned as a whole so please be on time!
Rehearsals will be in the winter school holidays and shows will be between the 18th and the 29th of July.
