Audition Call for 2018 Pantomime – Once Upon A Time


In 2018, Brindle Players will be celebrating 25 years of glorious pantomime frolics and fun. We’re opening out our auditions to members old and new for our latest production ‘Once Upon A Time’ by Paul Barron and Sarah Dyson, courtesy of LazyBee Scripts.

Auditions will be held on Sunday 1st October from 2pm until 5pm at St Joseph’s Parish Hall, Private Road, Hoghton, PR5 0DE.

Anyone interested in auditioning should attend from 2pm. Young members and those wanting Chorus roles only will be asked to stay until 3.30pm. Anyone wanting to audition for a principal role will be expected to stay until 5pm.

Principal cast will need to prepare an audition piece (a song of their choosing) which demonstrates their vocal ability. We will provide script examples for reading on the day.

There will be a read-through of the script on Thursday 28th September at 7:15pm – 9pm at St Joseph’s Parish Hall. All ages are welcome to attend
