Have you ever fancied taking part in a Christmas panto? Well now you have the perfect chance. Horsecross Arts are searching the land for talented local youngsters to take part in their family panto, Beauty and the Beast.
Boys and girls aged 9 to 13 who love to sing, dance, act and perform can download an application pack from the Horsecross Arts website on www.horsecross.co.uk or from Horsecross Arts Box Office in Perth Concert Hall. You will need to be quick, as the deadline for applications is 5pm on Saturday 12 September.
If you are successful you will be called for audition in Perth Concert Hall’s Norie-Miller Studio on Saturday 26 September.
The Beauty and the Beast panto tells the story of the arrogant Prince Sebastian has who refuses to marry the evil Witch Queen. He is then cursed to live as a hideous beast unless he can find a maiden to fall in love with him. Not only that, the Prince’s castle and servants have also been cursed to remain in limbo until the curse is broken.
The panto dame (Barrie Hunter) and her hapless son, along with their best friend, the beautiful Belle, arrive in the village on holiday with nowhere to stay. The Beast’s manservant thinks that Belle might just be the one to break the curse, and invites them to stay.
The panto will run in Perth Concert Hall from Saturday 12 to Saturday 26 December. You can book tickets here.
