Its mid February and although we are still in the throes of clearing up Jack and the Beanstalk’s stunning sets we are already hard at work with this year's unmissable Christmas pantomime Aladdin 2020. As advised in our January newsletter, auditions will be held on Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd March 2019. These will be held at the MADC Clubrooms starting at 2.30pm on Saturday 2nd and 10am on Sunday 3rd March.
To apply for an audition slot please send an email indicating your preferred day to email@example.com. You will then be emailed a form to bring with you duly filled on the audition day, together with your Artist CV (optional) and photo (mandatory).
The audition will consist of a dance routine taught on the day, perform a very short comic piece or joke of your choosing and sing a song of your choice that best demonstrates your vocal range. Please bring your own backing track on a pen-drive or phone.
