audition-banner-web

Open Auditions on 10th September from 2.00pm at Anthony Roper School

Read throughs on 5th and 7th September at 8.00pm at Eynsford Village Hall

It’s Audition Time!!!……Oh yes it is!

Come along and be part of this year’s panto, it’s going to be fun

A hilarious panto that has love, revenge and an enormous dose of laughter as we travel to Camelot to see Arthur woo his Guinevere.

We meet Merlin who is determined to find eternal youth battling his old rival Morgan le Fey and the love struck evil Valerin, King of the Tangled Wood, who plots to take Guinevere back to his Misty Castle, with the help of his mum, of course!

There are opportunities for wonderful principal roles and also superb cameo roles – fancy being a talking clock, a singing magical head, a ghost or even a portrait!!!  For a complete list of the characters and audition pieces, check out the Riverside Players website on www.riversideplayers.co.uk

Hope to see you all soon.
