Cinderella 2025 Audition information

We are pleased to announce our 35th Pantomime is ours and your favourite.....Cinderella. The show will be Produced and Directed by Keith Norledge and Barry Hopkins.

So what do you need to know...

 

We are looking for anyone aged 11+ (Min age 11 as of January 2025) to join the cast for this exciting production. We do want this to be both an adult and younger person mixed cast so please do consider auditioning. No previous experience is necessary...just bring enthusiasm and a willingness to join in.

 

Auditions - Sunday 7th July 2024 at The Henrician (formerly the Evesham Arts Centre) from 11am until 5.30pm. Please arrive from 10.30am for registration, wearing your dancing shoes (or suitable footwear at least!)

 

We will be running a singing and movement workshop from 11am until 12.30pm, followed by auditions from 1.30pm. Please attend both sessions if you wish to audition. If you only want to take part in the chorus you only need to attend the workshop morning session. Just let us know on the day.

 

If you are staying all day, please bring along a packed lunch- no hot food please. Also ensure you bring a drink as it is a long day and wear appropriate footwear allowing you to dance. Most of all come along and enjoy yourself!

 

Show Dates - Thursday 16th to Sunday 19th January 2025 at the Henrician Theatre.

 

Rehearsals - will start on Sunday 20th October 2024 at 2pm at Offenham Village Hall, Main Street, Offenham, finishing at 5.30pm.

 

Rehearsals run from October to December and recommence directly after the New Year at the Theatre. Commitment is every Sunday afternoon, plus occassional Monday evenings by arrangement. We operate a policy of a max 3 rehearsals missed and you're asked to leave the production (this is because timescales are so tight).

 

The chosen script is that of a traditional family Panto, full of all the song, dance you’d expect and it has lots of great larger than life principal characters along with the usual chorus to support them. We are planning to really utilise the chorus and get them involved in lots of scenes; so we would love to see as many of you as possible taking part.

 

As ever, everyone over 11 years of age is welcome, it would be great to see both new and familiar faces (young and old) at auditions. We’d love to have a really difficult time making decisions about casting because we know so many of you will give great audition performances.
 

We’ve listed below the main character parts along with the audition pieces.Learn the lines for the character you want to audition for.

We’ve also provided the audition song for those who need to audition (Not all parts require singing).

Our storage unit fire- update!

 

You may have seen in the Evesham local press that on Sunday 30th May 2021 a major fire engulfed our storage unit at Murcot. We have stored the entirety of Phoenix’s possessions at the unit for over fourteen years; this included many thousands of pounds of technical equipment, hundreds and hundreds of costumes, props and sets. Unfortunately, everything within the unit was destroyed during the fire, along with another four business units attached to ours. The fire was declared a major incident and took over ten fire engines to get under control.

 

Since news broke of the fire, we have been inundated with extremely kind, generous offers of help, gifts and well wishes. It is lovely to know how much the group means to people in the local community and we would like to extend our thanks to everyone who has reached out to us in the last two weeks.

 

The group's management committee are working extremely hard to ensure that Phoenix is able to rise from the ashes and produce our next production- The Show Must Go On! In October 2021-Tickets are on sale for this now!

 

If you are keen to offer your help to the group at this difficult time then please do email: info@phoenixtheatregroup.co.uk although best way to support us, is to buy tickets and come and see our upcoming productions.
