Beauty and the Beast Open Auditions – September 18th

Bearfoot Productions and Harrow Arts Centre are holding open auditions for our pantomime Beauty and the Beast on 18 September and 2 October and we need you!

Price: FREE

Venue: Harrow Arts Centre, Uxbridge Road, Hatch End HA5 4EA

Bearfoot Productions and Harrow Arts Centre are holding open auditions for our pantomime ‘Beauty and the Beast’ on 18 September and 2 October and we need you!

All parts are up for grabs! So, if you are a budding actor, singer or dancer and above the age of 14 then come along to Harrow Arts Centre and St Ann’s Shopping Centre.

Full Auditions

When: Sunday 18 September, 1pm – 7pm

How: What you will do at the audition will depend on which role you go for. If you want a singing part please prepare a song to perform (1-2 minutes max), preferably from a musical. You may then be asked to participate in a drama and dance workshop on the day. If you are going for a dancing / acting part, then we would still like to hear you sing but this will not impact on our selection. Dancers will be taught a short dance routine and acting parts only will be asked to read from a script.

Where: Harrow Arts Centre, Uxbridge Road, Hatch End HA5 4EA

Please note that the auditions may take longer than anticipated so please be prepared for some waiting around. You will need to come in comfortable clothing, and bring plenty of water!

Finding Belle Auditions

When: Sunday 2 October, 12pm – 3pm

How: Please prepare a song (1-2 minutes max) to perform accapella or come along with the relevant backing track (CD only – no vocals on the track)

Where: St Ann’s Shopping Centre, St Ann’s Road, Harrow HA1 1AT

Please note that anyone selected on the 18th September for the part of Belle and other leading female parts will also need to perform a song of their choice at St Ann’s Shopping Centre.

When are the rehearsals and performances?

Rehearsals will start on Sunday 9 October and from then on rehearsals will take place on Sundays (1pm-7pm) and Thursdays (7pm-10pm). Technical and dress rehearsals will take place daily from 5-14 December. If you are successful you will receive a detailed rehearsal schedule.

Please note that if you are away or unavailable for any of the performance dates could you let us know at the auditions as we may have two casts.

How will I know if I am successful?

We will let you know either way by email or post as long as you have filled in the attendance form correctly. If you have been successful then we will also tell you what part you have.

Successful candidates from the Finding Belle Audition will be asked to come back to Harrow Arts Centre for a dance and drama workshop before the final selection is made.

I’m interested in being involved – so how much is it going to cost?

It will cost you absolutely nothing to be involved – all you have to do is commit your time and put a lot of hard work in and you will get the opportunity to be involved in a production which is directed and designed by a professional team of artists.

If you want to get tickets for your friends and family then they can be purchased through the Box Office on 020 8416 8989 or you can buy them online at http://www.harrowarts.com/

I’m interested, what do I do now?

Email kerry.blackburn@harrow.gov.uk for a copy of the attendance form. Fill out the attendance form carefully, making sure that all the relevant parts are signed and bring it with you to the audition!

We look forward to meeting you and hope you can join us on our pantomime adventure!
