Calling all budding actors and singers! If you’ve ever fancied treading the boards in a professional theatrical production, make your way to the Millennium Forum on Wednesday 4th April when the North West’s premier theatre will be holding auditions for yet another fabulous Christmas Panto, ‘Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs’.

Directed by Jonathan Burgess, with choreography by Venessa Chapman and Trevor Burnside as Musical Director, ‘Snow White’ at the Forum boasts the best in local talent in the biggest show of the Autumn/Winter programme of events.

All lead cast roles including Snow White, Prince Charming and the evil Wicked Queen are up for grabs at the auditions. If it’s simply singing and dancing that’s your thing, then there are also a number of adult ‘Chorus’ parts to be won (age 17+). All lead roles require excellent singing and dancing ability.

David McLaughlin, Chief Executive of the Millennium Forum and show producer for the past nine years, encourages everyone with a desire to perform to audition:

“The Millennium Forum has developed a reputation for producing fantastic Christmas pantomimes that are fun for all the family. ‘Cinderella’ last year was hugely successful and one of our most popular to date, having performed to a massive audience of almost 30,000! The auditions for this year’s Christmas Panto provide a great opportunity to act, sing or dance in the biggest show of the season for all budding professional or amateur performers. Who knows – it could be the first step to a career in acting for some talented individual. We have already seen Gerard McCarthy (Jack in ‘Jack & The Beanstalk’ 2002) move onto great success with Channel 4’s ‘Hollyoaks’, and our ‘’Aladdin’ from 2009 and ‘Peter Pan’ from 2004, Conleth Kane, is also doing exceptionally well; he has recently enjoyed success on London’s West End following an appearance in the hit television programmes, Casualty and RTE’s recent search for FAME THE MUSICAL stars.”

Auditions for ‘Snow White’ will be held in the Millennium Forum on Wednesday 4th April from 10.30am.

Anyone interested should contact Lisa Lynch on 028 (048 from the Republic) 71 264426 between 10am – 4.30pm (Mon-Fri only) or email lisal@millenniumforum.co.uk to arrange an audition time. Please note, you must arrange an audition in advance.
