Calling all budding actors and singers! If you’ve ever fancied treading the boards in a professional theatrical production, make your way to the Millennium Forum on Friday 11th and Sat 12th March when the North West’s premier theatre will be holding auditions for yet another fabulous Christmas Panto, ‘Cinderella’.
Directed by Jonathan Burgess, with choreography by Venessa Chapman and Alan Wright as Musical Director, ‘Cinderella’ at the Forum boasts the best in local talent in the biggest show of the Autumn/Winter programme of events.
A number of lead cast roles including Cinderella, Prince Charming, Fairy Godmother and the Ugly Sistersare up for grabs at the auditions. If it’s simply singing and dancing that’s your thing, then there are also a number of adult ‘General Ensemble’ parts to be won (age 17+). All roles require excellent singing, acting and dancing ability.
David McLaughlin, Chief Executive of the Millennium Forum and show producer for the past thirteen years, encourages everyone with a desire to perform to audition: “The Millennium Forum has developed a reputation for producing fantastic Christmas pantomimes that are fun for all the family. ‘Aladdin’ last year was hugely successful, having performed to a massive audience of almost 30,000!
"The auditions for this year’s Christmas Panto provide a great opportunity to act, sing or dance in the biggest show of the season for all budding professional or amateur performers. Who knows – it could be the first step to a career in acting for some talented individual. We have already seen Gerard McCarthy (Jack in ‘Jack & The Beanstalk’ 2002) move onto great success with Channel 4’s ‘Hollyoaks’, our ‘Aladdin’ from 2009 and ‘Peter Pan’ from 2004, Conleth Kane, is also doing exceptionally well; he has recently enjoyed success on London’s West End following an appearance in the hit television programmes, Casualty and RTE’s search for FAME THE MUSICAL stars; Orla Mullan who played our ‘Fairy Godmother’ a number of times, has enjoyed success in the recent hit television series, ‘The Fall’; our ‘Peter Pan’ from 2013 and last year’s Aladdin, Mikey J Heath has recently starred as ‘Tom Thumb’ in the West End touring production of the hit musical, ‘Barnum’ and local actor, Dylan Reid, landed the part of ‘Andrej’ in the musical, ‘Once’.”
