Auditions for boys now open for The Pantomime Adventures of Peter Pan – An opportunity to fly!

Paul Holman Associates and Worthing Theatres are seeking boy actors to play the roles of John Darling, Michael Darling and the Lost Boys, in their 2016 production The Pantomime Adventures of Peter Pan at the Pavilion Theatre.

All applicants must be enthusiastic, confident, disciplined and have clear speaking voices with some singing and dancing ability. Boys between 9 and 15 may apply, and should not exceed 5’7” in height. Michael is the youngest and smallest of the brothers with an ideal playing age of 7-8, while John, his older brother, has an ideal playing age of 12-14. John and Michael will be required to fly in the production so should not have a fear of heights!

Boys attending auditions must be accompanied and need to have a valid signed parental permission form. If they are not attending with their own parent/guardian, then the form can be obtained by emailing Nick George, PHA associate producer, at nick@paulholmanassociates.co.uk and must be brought along on the day.

Successful children must be available for the whole of the rehearsal and performance period from Monday 21 November to Sunday 8 January. They should also live within a maximum of 30 minutes travelling distance of the Pavilion Theatre. There may be some weekend rehearsals scheduled prior to the rehearsal period which are to be confirmed.

Auditions will be held at the Pavilion Theatre in Worthing on Sunday 11th September, with registration at 11am. All successful applicants are subject to local education authority performance licensing. Children should only attend if accompanied by an adult able to give parental consent for participation and media coverage.

This year the stars of the pantomime include Dick n Dom’s Richard McCourt, West End’s American Idiot and pop star Amelia Lily, stand-up comedian Patrick Monohan and X Factor’s Lloyd Daniels.
