Jack and the Beanstalk 2021 - Juvenile auditions FAQS
When are Auditions?
These take place on Monday 13th September from 4.30pm at Camberley Theatre.
How do I audition for the pantomime?
First check you’re eligible; you must be at least 9 years old by 1st September to take part. This year there is no minimum or maximum height restrictions. Then check you are available for the rehearsals and performance dates:
Rehearsals: Sunday 21st November and then 27th November - 10th December 2021
Rehearsals take place after school and at weekends.
Performances: Friday 10th - Friday 31st December 2021. Juvenile cast will perform a maximum of 1 show per day with the exception of Saturdays when a team may do 2 shows.
If all of this sounds OK, then please complete the Juvenile Registration Form which can be found on our Pantomime web page. Please do not attend if you have any school shows, family commitments or holidays booked during the panto season.
What happens on the day?
Please arrive from 4pm and make sure you’ve checked in with us and are ready to start by 4.30pm. Audition will be finished at 6.30pm and we will not make any cuts, meaning you will stay for the whole audition workshop which will be taken by our Choreographer Thomas and Director Suzi. You will be taught a group dance from the show.
What should I bring?
Please make sure you bring plenty of water and a light snack. Please do not bring energy or fizzy drinks.
Please wear appropriate footwear; jazz shoes or trainers are fine. (No bare feet or dancing in socks).
Do you only cast Juveniles with experience?
No, not at all – you don’t need to have trained or belong to a dance school. Just have plenty of the enthusiasm, energy and passion. You must be prepared to work hard but also have lots of fun! We do recommend that you have confidence in dance as the juvenile chorus will have approximately 4 numbers to learn as well as sing at the same time!
When will I find out if I’ve been cast?
We will contact everyone the following week to let you know if you’ve been chosen or not. If you haven’t been successful this time, please try again in the future.
Sometimes casting comes down to simple things like heights against other juveniles or how you look against our professional cast.
