Auditions: Electric Dreams - performances 17th -19th June 2021

We are looking to cast several lead and supporting roles ages 16 - 21 to perform alongside professional actors/musicians. Rehearsals start at the beginning of June.

Electric Dreams is 'a totally awesome 80s musical adaptation of Shakespeare’s classic tale ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’, staged in the spectacular Priory outdoor ruins.' 

The production involves a professional cast, including West End stars Zoe Curlett and Keiron Crook in the roles of Titania & Oberon.

The cast will be accompanied by a live professional band and there will also be funded opportunities for performing arts & technical theatre students age 16-18 to perform and be involved in the show, gaining experience in the professional arts industry.

This is a fully funded opportunity. For more information on the audition process, rehearsals etc please complete the form below.

Auditions: West Side Story - performances 28th - 30th October 2021

We are looking to cast some of the lead roles and welcome applications for supporting cast too; ages 13 - 21. Performances take place at The Brindley Theatre Runcorn alongside a 19 piece professional orchestra. Rehearsals start at the end of April.

From the first notes to the final breath, West Side Story is one of the most memorable musicals and greatest love stories of all time. Arthur Laurents' book remains as powerful, poignant and timely as ever. The score by Leonard Bernstein and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim are widely regarded as among the best ever written. The world's greatest love story takes to the streets in this landmark Broadway musical that is one of the theatre's finest accomplishments. Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet is transported to modern-day New York City as two young, idealistic lovers find themselves caught between warring street gangs, the "American" Jets and the Puerto Rican Sharks. Their struggle to survive in a world of hate, violence and prejudice is one of the most innovative, heart-wrenching and relevant musical dramas of our time.

This is a fully funded opportunity; however we are asking all cast to contribute to our fundraising efforts. For more information on the audition process, rehearsals etc please complete the form below.
