Event description

Description

Multi-award winning theatre company CCADS are this year staging Andrew Lloyd Webber's record-breaking skating spectacular STARLIGHT EXPRESS at Petersfield Festival Hall, which will be turned into a fast moving racetrack experience, week commencing Sunday 17th June 2018.

You could be part of this exciting production as, due to the unique requirements of this show, we will be holding a series of skating workshops as an open ensemble audition for those who wish to be considered for roles in the show.

These workshops will, initially, be focussed on gaining confidence with skating - starting with the basics and building to choreographed movement - and are open to anyone over the age of 16 who is interested in being part of the cast, whether or not you have previously appeared in a CCADS production.

The 'Skate School' will run on Sundays 4th, 11th and 18th of Feburary from 2pm-5pm at Giselle Dance Academy in North End, Portsmouth. We will ensure that, if we have not already seen you perform, you will be given the opportunity to sing and act whether as part of these sessions or at seperately arranged sessions with our production team.

The production team are looking for potential, not perfection, and these sessions are open to performers (and skaters) of all abilities. So don't worry if you've never skated before - this is your chance to try it out, and if selected for casting you will have three more months of intensive rehearsals to become an expert. Equally, expert skaters are very welcome too!

Please register your interest with your availability for one (or all) of these sessions. You must be able to attend at least one of these sessions, although we will take into account any special circumstances at the production team's discretion.

Please feel free to bring your own skates (QUAD ROLLER SKATES NOT ROLLER BLADES) as we may be unable to supply you with a set for these sessions.

Rehearsals for STARLIGHT EXPRESS will take place from early March with a mixture of Tuesday and Thursday evenings, with Sunday afternoon and evening rehearsals. Further details of commitments (fees and subs etc) will be discussed with candidates at the sessions (which are free to attend). A full schedule will be confirmed following casting.

Feel free to share this event with anyone you feel would be interested in this exciting opportunity.
