Audition for Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity’s production of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity are back at Aylesbury Waterside Theatre for a third year, raising funds for local hospice care, with an exciting community production of new musical ‘Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ on Saturday 3rd August. The Charity is seeking local children from across Bucks, aged 6 – 17 with a love of theatre to be part of this special production on a professional stage.

No experience is needed to audition, just a love of singing, acting and dancing. Auditions will be taking place on Sunday 28th April and Thursday 2nd May at the Norman Bragg Studio, Aylesbury Waterside Theatre.

Oscar, aged nine, took part in the Charity’s last production of Nativity! The Musical, he told us “I loved being in the cast of Nativity! It was so exciting to be backstage, learning all the songs and dances and making lots of friends. It was a little scary performing to such a big audience for the first time, but once I got used to it, it was amazing! Now I love to perform and can’t wait to be in more shows!”

Amy Quinlan, Director of the Show and Senior Fundraiser for Special Projects and Events for the Charity says “We are so excited to hold auditions for this exciting production, we are the only Hospice Charity in the country to direct our own shows and our previous performances have been resoundingly successful. We cannot wait to see the range of talent that the young people of Buckinghamshire have to offer at our upcoming auditions.”

Aimed at bringing the local community together while raising money for local hospice care services, successful auditionees will be asked to attend an intensive rehearsal period for two-weeks leading up to the show, where they will be guided by trained theatre professionals, culminating with two performances on the big stage at Aylesbury Waterside Theatre on 3rd August.

All money raised from the show will go to Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity, which is dedicated to delivering the best hospice care for everyone who needs it across Buckinghamshire and its borders.
