Action from last year's panto at the Cresset

The annual Cresset pantomime - which this year is Peter Pan - takes place from 10 to 30 December and production bosses are looking for some talented youngsters to perform alongside star names and a full professional cast at the Peterborough theatre.

On Sunday September 11 local young people are invited to audition for the opportunity to become a part of the show. Anyone from the age of 7 is welcome to audition.

Some singing and movement ability is preferred, along with all round acting ability, enthusiasm and a hard working attitude.

Available roles include John and Michael – Wendy’s younger brothers who take the trip to Neverland with Peter Pan, as well as Lost Boys, Pirates, Mermaids and Indians. The roles (particularly for the boys) are acting roles, and therefore require little or no dance experience.

Although good movement around the stage is important, getting the right characters is the priority.

With an exciting new director and West End choreographer this is a great opportunity to be part of a professional production, and experience the magic of Pantomime from the stage.

Audition times are as follows:

Junior Audition

11am: Lost Boys (and girls) 7 - 11: Acting ability, good movement

Intermediate Audition

12.30pm: Indians, Mermaids 12 - 15: Acting and dance ability
