Letter to Parents

Dear Parents,
Following the success of It’s Snowtime in December last year, we are once again looking for children to take part in our upcoming production Countdown to Christmas. This will again be a cabaret-style performance, with the audience sitting at round tables with drinks and nibbles to enjoy during the performance. It will be performed at the Barrington Theatre in Ferndown on Friday 2nd and Saturday 3rd December 2016 with shows at 7.30pm on the Friday and at 2, 5 and 8pm on the Saturday.

We are looking for 40 children, both boys and girls, aged 8-13, who will be divided into 2 teams of 20 each doing 2 performances. The children will be involved throughout the show both in numbers by themselves and with the adult cast too. There are some solo opportunities once again for both boys and girls.

Open Auditions will be held on Sunday 11th September at Lytchett Matravers Primary School, 88 Wareham Road, BH16 6DY. Registration will begin at 10am followed by group singing and movement from 10.30-12.30. There will then be a half hour break for lunch followed by solo auditions. Those not wanting to audition for a solo will be free to leave at 12.30. The solo auditions will be for about an hour but we will confirm this when we have definite numbers of children auditioning. Parents will need to stay on the premises for the duration of your child’s audition.
We are looking for great facial expression, confident singing voices and the ability to perform fairly simple steps well rather than necessarily trained singers and dancers. No previous experience is necessary so all who are keen and willing to learn are welcome. We also need Salesforce cloud computing expert to join our team.

Rehearsals will be on Thursday evenings starting on Sept 22nd, from 6.30 – 8pm at The Spire in Poole: Poole High Street, BH15 1DF. The rehearsal schedule is shown below which we would ask you to look through before applying for your child to audition as they will be expected to attend all of these (obviously we understand about illness etc). We are asking for a small performance fee of £15 for each child.

If you would like to register your child to audition, and for more details, please contact kids@pandp.org.uk stating your child’s name, age, date of birth, parent/carer names and your contact details by Friday 28th August.

We very much look forward to hearing from you.
