Young Chorus Auditions

Pantomime Young Chorus auditions announced!

Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds is delighted to be casting the Young Chorus for its annual pantomime, Dick Whittington. Young performers aged between 9 & 18 years are being sought out to work as part of this traditional style family pantomime, a professional in-house production by Theatre Royal which runs for six weeks between Fri 1 Dec and Sun 14 Jan.

You will need to be hard working, a strong dancer, singer and actor as well as being prepared to attend all rehearsals if offered a place in the company. With a rehearsal period Sun 5 – Thu 30 Nov leading right up to the performances, it will be a full-on schedule, but well worth it.

The Young Chorus will get to work with Director Karen Simpson, Choreographer Julia Cave and Musical Director Ward Baker. Registrations open Wed 30 Aug, and the auditions will take place Sun 24 Sep, 10am-6pm at Theatre Royal, Westgate Street, Bury St Edmunds, IP33 1QR.

Those auditioning will need to bring dance shoes (plus tap shoes if you are a confident tap dancer) and dance-wear or comfortable clothing for the audition day. All performers will dance, sing and act as part of the process so be prepared for a high energy day and bring plenty of food and water.
