Auditions for dance and chorus roles in pantomime
PAIGNTON Pantomime Productions is holding dancer and chorus auditions on Sunday for its forthcoming Christmas pantomime, Mother Goose.
Auditions will be held at the Palace Theatre in Paignton and are being separated into groups, with the dance auditions taking place at midday.
Director Iain Douglas said: "We are looking for a team of male and female dancers who must be over 5ft tall. They must have very good modern and tap ability.
"However, if someone is a good modern dancer, and not so proficient in tap, then we might accept them but they wouldn't do the tap routines.

"Those auditioning will be taught a modern routine and a tap routine as a group and then sing in small groups.
"For the show, the dancers will be required to learn about eight big routines in a short period of time so commitment is essential."
Chorus auditions then take place from 1pm.
"We are looking for an adult chorus of male and female performers. No previous experience necessary, but must be able to move in song and dance and be able to learn about six routines in a short space of time in the run up to the show.
"We are not looking for children for this chorus, but would accept people aged from about 13 or 14 upwards if they looked suitably mature for their age.
"Those auditioning will be taught a short routine as a group and then do a bit of singing individually or in pairs."
Junior dance auditions then take place form 2.30pm.
"We are looking for little girls and boys to form two teams . The maximum height is 4ft 8ins.
"They must be proficient in modern and also preferably in tap, although if you cannot tap, please still audition as you might be accepted and just simply wouldn't do the tap number.
"They must be able to learn about six big routines in a fairly short period of time in the run up to the show."
Anyone accepted into the cast will be required to attend rehearsals from mid-October onwards, usually about three times a week and more frequently the nearer the show gets.
The show runs at the Palace Theatre from December 23 until January 2.
