The Search is on for Prince Charming to join the cast in a star-studded Cinderella Panto this Christmas
We all love the classic fairy-tale of Cinderella as Prince Charming hunts for his new princess by trying to fit their foot into the glass slipper but, this year, Blackburn Empire Theatre are turning the story on its head and searching for Prince Charming.
Most of the star-studded cast for Cinderella has already been announced, including Linda Lusardi as the Fairy Godmother and singing sensation Lucy Kane as Cinderella but now one lucky local has the opportunity to join the cast as Prince Charming!
Tom Rolfe Productions, the company behind this year’s panto, are holding auditions at Blackburn Empire Theatre on Sunday 21st August to find the final star for this year’s line-up.
Tom Rolfe said:
“We are so excited to be bringing this brand-new production of Cinderella to Blackburn’s Empire at Christmas and we are now on the lookout for our Prince Charming.
“We know that there is so much local talent in Blackburn and the rest of the Northwest, and we wanted to give someone local the opportunity to star in this fabulous production.
“So, if you believe you have the acting, dancing, and singing skills to be part of this professional cast, then you cannot miss this opportunity.
“We are happy to hear from anyone who believes they could be our Prince Charming, whether you have mountains of experience or are just starting out.”
Applicants must be available from mid-November to the end of December and the successful Prince will be offered a contract to star in the panto.
So, are you our Prince Charming? Do you know a Prince Charming? Are you ready to join in the songs, dance and laughter that will make this one of the biggest pantos the theatre has ever seen?
You should be able to bring your own backing tracks. Sample scripts will be sent to those selected for the auditions.
