Auditions for this year’s pantomime - Jack and the Beanstalk - will take place on Sunday 2 September at 2pm at Clincarthill Church, 1220 Cathcart Road, Glasgow G42 9EU. Anyone interested in being part of this year’s fun-filled extravaganza should attend. No need to prepare an audition piece, as our Musical Director, David Dunlop, will teach part of a song, and our new Choreographer, Nicola Fry will teach a short piece of movement, which you will then be asked to perform. You will be advised on the day if you have been successful in your Company audition. There is no fee to audition for Runway, but you do have to be 16 or over. Principal auditions will take place at the same time and venue the following Sunday, 9 September. Information on Principal parts and audition pieces will be given on 2 September.
Thereafter Company rehearsals will take place on Thursday evenings from 20 September 7.30-10pm until 18 October. Principal rehearsals will be on Sunday afternoons from 2-5pm from 23 September. There will be no rehearsals on Sunday 21 October due to the School Holiday week, and thereafter Company rehearsals will swop to Sunday afternoons from 2-5pm, from 28 October, and Principal rehearsals will be on Thursday evening from 25 October. Confused - you will be!
There is a double run-through on Sunday 25 November from 2-8pm. Costume uplift will be on Thursday 29 November, followed by a final run-through. We move into the theatre on Sunday 2 December for get-in, tech rehearsal, Band Call (3pm) and Dress Rehearsal (7pm). The show runs from Monday 3 - Saturday 8 December at 7.30pm with Saturday matinees at 11am and 3pm. Please note there is also a mid-week Schools Matinee on Thursday 6 December at 1pm, and anyone auditioning for a Principal role should confirm they are available.
