FANCY flying away to Neverland this Christmas? Then you could be just the person that the West Yorkshire Playhouse is looking for.
Four boys are needed to play Wendy’s younger brothers Michael and John in J M Barrie’s classic adventure, Peter Pan.
It’s a swashbuckling story full of flying and fantasy scenes. Join Peter and the lost boys in a magical land of mermaids and fairies, where children can fly and adventures happen every day. But danger is just around the corner: the dastardly Captain Hook and his evil band of pirates are looking for a fight and Peter Pan is top of their list.
The Playhouse is offering four youngsters the chance to join the company. Boys who would like to play Michael should look as if they are aged seven and be able to sing solo and act. They should also expect to fly!
Play John and you’ll need to look about 14, be able to sing with a broken voice and to act.
Auditions for the roles are at the Playhouse on Saturday September 27.
If you want to play Michael, auditions are from noon and for John, the auditions start at 3pm.
You’ll need to prepare a song and take along your piano music.
It’s a chance to be on stage in one of the best Christmas shows in the region. Peter Pan is directed by Rachel Kavanaugh, artistic director of Birmingham Repertory Theatre, whose production of The Wizard Of Oz wowed families when it was staged at the Playhouse in 2006.
If you are interested, call the Playhouse box office on 0113 213 7700 before Wednesday (September 24) to book an audition time. You will need to give a contact name, number, address and preferably an e-mail address.
The show opens on November 22 and runs until January 31.
