Last updated at 08:58, Wednesday, 23 July 2014
It may be the middle of summer but preparations are underway for this year’s big Christmas pantomime in Carlisle.
The Sands Centre has announced auditions for Peter Pan, revealing it is searching for a talented leading lady to take on the role of Wendy.
Producers are also searching for stars aged eight and above for the legendary story’s characters of Michael, John, The Lost Children and Tinkerbell the magical fairy.
The production will run for 32 performances in December. Those who attend are set for “amazing flying effects, a lavish set, a fantastic live band and top quality professional performers”.
Guy Pascall, director, said “What a great opportunity for local performers to be involved.
“Not only do we need our usual teams of dancers but this year we’re also looking for children with acting and singing experience.”
Youngsters interested should attend an ‘open audition’ at The Sands Centre on Sunday, September 7. Auditions for Wendy will take place the day before for female performers aged 16 or above.
Organisers say this will be a great opportunity for a budding actress to gain her first professional contract.
Hopefuls need to bring two contrasting songs of their choice with a CD backing track so the audition panel can listen to them sing.
Those already set to appear include Chris Ellison from The Bill as Captain Hook, Darragh Mortell from CBBC’s Tracy Beaker as Peter Pan and CFM Radio’s Robbie Dee as Smee.
