Castle Players' first Pantomime was Beauty and the Beast way back in 1978 and we've put on a panto every two years ever since.
So, what does being in a pantomime involve?
Well, mostly, lots of fun!
We like our pantomimes to involve as many people as possible and we promise to find a part for you, no matter what age you are, whether you've been on stage before or are a total newcomer all that's needed is a good sense of humour and tons of enthusiasm! We always put on a professional show but for us, the most important thing is that we have fun and make new friends.
We do ask for commitment though and expect you to turn up to all the rehearsals that you're called for (these will generally be on Sunday afternoons, starting in November with main characters being called one or two weeknights too - usually followed by the pub!)
After Christmas, things start getting really interesting and we add more evenings into the mix. This is also the time we build our set and we're always grateful of help from anyone that can wield a paintbrush or a screwdriver!
Then we get to the run - this time it's 21, 22, 28 & 29 January (there is one performance on each Friday and 2 on the Saturdays)
Our auditions for Aladdin will be at Lytchett Matravers Village Hall on Sunday 19th September at 5pm. Everyone is welcome! Children need to be over 10 and accompanied by an adult.
If you'd like more info then please drop us an email!
We'd really love to hear from you!
