Audition requirements:
You will be asked to:
Perform a monologue (Either pre-prepared or we will provide a selection. This does not need to be
memorized)
Perform a song of your choice a-capella. Preferably something simple and upbeat.
You may be asked to read from the script with other auditioners.
If you have experience peforming magic tricks (especially rope tricks), we invite you to demonstrate
them for us.

What is a pantomime anyway?
A pantomime is a family-oriented show where the audience is encouraged to interact with the actors on
stage (by cheering for heroes, booing villains, answering questions, etc...)
Some common features of pantomimes are songs, dancing, slapstick comedy, and cross-dressing.
