Event description

Description

Following The Talentz' genie-us production of Aladdin earlier this year, Jack and the Beanstalk is set to hit new heights with a stunning professional set, dazzling special effects, magnificent costumes, a sensational live band, and even a tap-dancing cow!

Auditions for our principal cast will take place in the Studio Theatre at the EM Forster Theatre, Tonbridge on Sunday 17th September. Choose your afternoon audition slot by booking online in advance. Last year our principal auditions were fully booked and this year we will be casting the show the very same day, so don't miss your chance to audition! A cast list with character descriptions, playing ages and vocal ranges is available to download from our website.

As well as getting the chance to perform in one of the biggest pantomimes in Kent, our cast will receive one-to-one training with some of Pantoland's most respected creatives, including leading panto expert Simon Sladen, who'll once again be working as Associate Director on the show.

You will receive an audition pack in advance of the day, detailing any songs and audition pieces that you should prepare in advance. Auditions packs will not be available on the day, so it is imperative you print and prepare the text. In some cases, you may be asked to read alternative roles. All auditionees under 18 years of age must be accompanied by a responsible adult if they haven't registered in advance to authorise the taking photos and videos. No adults will be permitted in the audition room.

Successful auditionees will need to be available for rehearsals on Sundays throughout October, November and December. Rehearsals will take place in the TN2 Centre, Greggswood Road, Tunbridge Wells, TN2 3LZ between 1pm and 5pm. A full and detailed rehearsal schedule will be included in the audition pack. There will also be a show fee of £100 to cover rehearsal costs and materials, costumes and professional coaching from our choreographers and creatives.

We would strongly encourage anyone considering auditioning to read about our free panto workshops on Saturday 16th September in the theatre, which will provide a unique insight into the workings of pantomime, including masterclasses in stock character construction and formation.

We will also be offering a free drop-in session for those auditioning for principal parts on Saturday 16th from 5-6pm. Bring along your prepared audition piece for feedback from Simon and/or your songs for help from one of our Talentz vocal coaches.

If you have any questions whatsoever please contact us at casting@thetalentz.com.
