 Your child will need to perform the dialogue for their preferred role; this does not need to be learnt by heart, but they should be familiar with the piece and have researched the character.

Please bring a photo of your child, light refreshments and any required medication.

No. We welcome children who have no experience, who are enthusiastic, committed and have a love of theatre.

Something that is light, comfortable and easy to move in

We are hoping to cast 100 children. It is inevitable that some children will be disappointed if they are not selected. Please make sure that your child understands that this is not a reflection of their talent or ability. We would love to take everyone, but we do not have that capacity. We will cover this at the auditions.
