Northampton’s Royal & Derngate is looking for talented children from the local community to join its professional cast in this year’s magical Christmas show – The Wind In The Willows – which runs from 27 November to 5 January. Auditions will take place at the theatre on Saturday 28 September, with call backs on Sunday 29 September.
Director Gary Sefton is looking for girls and boys aged between 8 and 14 years old to play a variety of riverbank animals in this adaptation of Kenneth Grahame’s classic and well-loved children’s story. The young actors will be cast in three teams that will rotate between performances. The boys and girls need to have good movement, singing and acting ability, as well as being enthusiastic and having bags of personality. Rehearsals start on 21 October, and children must be available for rehearsals and performances as scheduled until the show finishes on 5 January.
