Peter Pan Panto Children's Auditions for Over 14's & Adults
Wednesday 8th August and Thursday 9th at 7pm at Clark Memorial Hall, Largs
Wednesday will be our first round of auditions open to all over 14. We will learn songs, act and do some movement. We will be casting the ensemble from this audition and principals. The Thursday will be for call backs for principal auditions and a blended audition night with children who have passed the children’s auditions to call back stage.
The audition song for everyone will be Go West by Pet Shop Boys, have a listen and get familiar. No need to learn the words as new words will be taught.
Principal roles available to over 14s (no upper age limit!) are:
Dame - male comedy
Smee - male comedy
Captain Hook - male villain
Marydoll the mermaid - female comedy lead
For the roles of the following we will audition both children (at their audition day) and grown ups:
For the roles of Tinkerbell and Peter Pan auditionees should only audition if they do not have a fear of heights and agree to flying on stage (with a little help from the pros, no need to supply your own pixie dust). For safety reasons there’s also a weight limit.
the following specific songs will be used for specific principal auditions again get familiar but be prepared to be taught alternative words!
MARYDOLL AND DAME - All about the bass by Meghan trainor
TIGER LILY, TINKERBELL AND WENDY - Lost Boy by Ruth B
CAPTAIN HOOK - King of Pirates (to the tune of Sweet Transvestite from Rock Horror)
PETER PAN - Go West
There will be some singing rehearsals and blocking in August and September but rehearsals will kick off properly after October school break. We typically rehearse Tues and Thursday evenings, and latterly at weekends which will be Saturdays instead of Sundays this year due to production team availability.
Now....who’s excited??! We are!!! (Oh yes we are!)
