Be in a Show

Jack & the Beanstalk Auditions 
Sunday 7 July

Our young chorus are an important part of what makes our annual panto great! to find out more information about auditions, please download the application form and FAQs by clicking here.


We are looking for young people aged 9-15 to audition. I’m afraid that, this year, if you are already 16 or will turn 16 by 31 August you will not be able to take part. This is to do with performance licence rules and our own backstage/dressing room space.

If you are 15 now but will turn 16 from 1 September onwards you will still be classed as Licensed and can take part in the production.
