Audition Update!

David writes on behalf of the audition team: “Massive thanks to all the 63 who came to the auditions yesterday, plus the other 4 who are still to audition yet as they couldn’t get there. We were blown away by the talent on display, lots of great new members to the ensemble too. Apologies for the long wait for some. Now a certain amount of work on the draft script is required as Sleeping Beauty is wide awake! We’ll be in touch with the casting soonest !”

Auditions for Sleeping Beauty

Yes, it will be pantomime again this December (Oh no it won’t ! – Oh yes it will !) when the Stage Door serves up another fun-filled fantasy. This year it’s that tale of the Princess who falls asleep after pricking her hand on a spindle,cursed by the wicked witch.Then she is woken up by the kiss of a Prince.

There are lots of great parts, of course. Many of which have never been heard of in the original version! Plus music and song (and a little choreography too!).

Auditions will be on 8 September, 2pm at the Turner Centre.
Performances at the Turner Centre December 13-15.
