AUDITIONS for the Friends of New Mills Art Theatre’s pantomime production of Aladdin take place next month.

The 2012 production of Aladdin will be staged at the Art Theatre on January 27-28 and February 2-4.

Anyone interested in auditioning for the chorus, dancers or a principal part is invited to go along to a get-together at the Jodrell Street theatre on Monday September 5 at 7.30pm, when potential cast members will be able to meet the director and collect audition pieces.

Among the classic pantomime characters up for grabs are: Princess Balraubabour, Wishy Washy, Widow Twankey, Abanazar, Emperor of China, Sing Lo, Charlie Chan, Chin Chin Chan, Chee-Kee, Genie of the Lamp, Genie of the Ring and Aladdin.

Anyone wishing to join the backstage team at the theatre is also invited to attend the get-together, to find out more about volunteering for the stage crew or front of house teams.

Principal auditions will be held on September 11, followed by chorus and dancing auditions on September 18.
