Anne Dalton from ABD Productions is searching for junior ensemble from age 8 upwards to play a variety of characters in her brand new musical version of “The Pied Piper”.
Older performers are invited to support the visiting adult professional company as the adult ensemble and also fill several adult character roles. A variety of dance styles is necessary together with the ability to act and sing in ensemble.
Several large junior teams and one senior team will be needed for this exciting new production. Would–be performers must check their holiday dates against show dates prior to audition. Those who are successful will be required to pay a one-off show charge of £40 plus a small sub of £1 per rehearsal to cover costs of rehearsals, tuition, lyric books, CDs, costumes etc. There will be no other charges to take part in the production.
SHOW DATES AND REHEARSALS
“The Pied Piper” will be staged at The Brindley at the beginning of the summer holidays, from Thursday 28th July – Sunday 31st July with a mixture of matinee and evening performances. Tech/dress rehearsals will be held on 26th and 27th July. We do not envisage that any time off school will be needed. Rehearsals will be held mainly on Sundays plus a couple of days in half-term – see attached list.
Performers under 16 years of age need to register at 10.00am and those over 16 at 3.00pm. Auditionees need to come in comfortable clothing, appropriate footwear and bring drinks and some lunch. They should not bring backing tracks or prepared pieces.
- Youngsters under 16 must be accompanied by a responsible adult to register at 10.00am prompt. At 2.30pm they will be informed whether their youngster is through to the afternoon session. Those who are not through will be thanked and released.
- Last time the auditions took several hours. We have known 300 youngsters arrive in the past and you will appreciate it presents difficulties for even the best run organisation to process and audition such numbers successfully. We do ask that parents/guardians are patient.
- Please do not bring valuables to the audition. We cannot accept responsibility for loss or damage.
- ALL AT ABD LOOK FORWARD TO MEETING YOU AND WISH YOU “GOOD LUCK” FOR YOUR AUDITION.
