CALL FOR ACTORS TO PERFORM ALONGSIDE CALUM BEST and BERYL MARSDEN IN GLITTERING PANTO CINDERELLA!
Calling all up and coming male actors in Merseyside! You could star in the most enchanting panto in the land!
Producers LHK Productions Ltd, are now seeking two talented male actors to play the characters of Buttons and Dandini in their glittering production of Cinderella at the Epstein Theatre this Christmas.
Lee Kelly, managing director of LHK Productions will be holding an open audition to find two talented local men who can sing, dance and act and are holding auditions on Monday, 21st September.
For the part of Buttons, they are looking for a cheeky chappy, aged 16-25, with a great personality and perfect comic timing, who can sing. The character of Buttons is a bit down at heel but is always there to cheer poor Cinders up.
Meanwhile, Dandini is Prince Charming’s right hand man, We are looking for a strong actor, age 18-30, of any height, who much have a strong vocal.
The casting will take place at the Epstein Theatre and must be arranged by appointment only by emailing [email protected]
Auditionees need to prepare to sing two pop songs of their choice (one ballard and one uptempo piece) and list which part they wish to audition for.
Returning to the Epstein Theatre for their fourth festive season, Cinderella tells the much-loved story of a pretty young girl kept captive by her wicked ugly step-sisters. When Cinders is invited to a magnificent ball at the palace, her two fiendish siblings forbid her to attend.
With a wave of a magic wand, her very own fairy godmother appears to save the day and she is transformed into a beautiful princess. After a magical evening dancing endlessly with Prince Charming, midnight approaches and poor Cinders has to depart before the spell is broken.
With a single glass slipper left behind, will Prince Charming be able to find his princess? Will Cinders escape the clutches of her ugly step-sisters and live happily ever after?
Those talented enough to impress the producers will take to the stage alongside Calum Best, the son of football legend George Best, as Prince Charming, and like his famous father, the heart-throb certainly has buckets of charm and is bound to woo the audience, as well as the hand of Cinderella…
The all star production also features Beryl Marsden, one of the greatest vocalists of the Merseybeat era, who will make her panto debut as the Fairy Godmother.
Lee added: “We’d love to give local up and coming actors a chance!”
So if you think you would make a perfect Buttons or Dandini, contact LHK Productions to arrange your audition today.
