Worthing Theatres and Paul Holman Associates have today announced that they will be holding open auditions for children aged 9-12 to star in their fantastic upcoming Cinderella: The Pantomime; their best-ever selling Christmas production.

The open auditions will take place at the Pavilion Theatre, Worthing on Sunday 6 October from 1-5pm and  all auditioning children must have arrived before 1pm. They are looking for 24 little stars to take on roles in three teams of dancers. Children must be aged 9-12 years and no taller than 4’11. Dance experience is required to at least a grade 1 in ballet, tap or contemporary.

With this year’s incredible cast now announced, auditioning children have the chance to potentially perform alongside Strictly Come Dancing’s Ian Waite as Dandini, Children’s TV presenter Naomi Wilkinson as Cinderella, Boyband A1’s Mark Read as Prince Charming, Nicole Faraday in the role of the Wicked Stepmother and returning comedian Mark Jones as Buttons. In a production which promises to be more spectacular than ever before with lavish scenery and costumes, breath-taking special effects and laugh-out-loud comedy capers.

Producer Paul Holman says “This is a great opportunity to involve young people from the local community as we’ve done in the previous years. We hope to see as many of you as possible at the auditions as we welcome some of our future stars of the stage. This year's pantomime promises even more music, magic and laughter and we are excited that local young dancers get to be part of that incredible experience.”
