Auditions…Oh No They’re Not!

Dear Highland School (Please share the following information with your pupils and their families as appropriate):

We have an exciting opportunity. Eden Court and Imagine Theatre are delighted to announce that we will be holding open auditions to find young performers for this year’s magical family pantomime Peter Pan on Sun 28 Aug 2022. Peter Pan is a swashbuckling adventure panto, with spectacular song and dance routines, an outrageous dame, hilarious comic and lots of traditional panto slapstick.

What we are looking for:

  • Junior Ensemble

Involves dancing and performance, no individual singing required. We are looking for 3 teams of 8 members and additional reserve team members. The teams will rotate the performances between them, but all teams will need to attend every rehearsal.

Children must be at least 9 years old and in P5 on the first day of rehearsals and no older than 16 years old and in S4 on the last day of performances.

Audition form attached, please bring completed form on audition day.

  • Cast – John and Michael (Wendy’s brothers) –

Involves acting, singing and dancing. We are looking for 3 Johns and 3 Michaels – one to perform with each Junior Ensemble team – and additional reserve John’s and Michael’s to perform in the Junior Ensemble.

Children must be at least 9 years old and in P5 on the first day of rehearsals and no older than 16 years old and in S4 on the last day of performances.

Auditionees must perform an excerpt of the script for their audition, this will be sent to auditionees two weeks prior to their audition. Please be aware that these roles are not suitable for anyone afraid of heights as they require children to ‘fly’ using harnesses. Any unsuccessful applicants will be considered for the Junior Ensemble.

Application form attached, please submit completed form prior to audition day to faye@imaginetheatre.co.uk.

Required commitment:

  • Auditions             Sun 28 Aug 9.30am Eden Court, Inverness
  • Rehearsals           Sat 19 Nov onwards (evening and daytime rehearsals)
  • Performances      Wed 7 Dec 2022 – Sun 8 Jan 2023 (evening and daytime performances)

Kind regards,

Eden Court and Imagine Theatre
