Budding actors aged from five to 29 are being invited to audition for Harborough Youth Theatre’s forthcoming production of Cinderella.

The panto will be staged in January and February 2019.

A spokesman for the Youth Theatre said: “The age limit has been raised as we had a number of enquiries from performers who would have joined the Market Harborough Musical Theatre but who have said there is now a gap for them.”

The workshop takes place on Sunday, September 2, between 2pm-3pm for under 11s and primary school age children, and 2pm-5pm for over 11s.

Auditions will then take place the following Sunday, September 9, between 2pm-2.30pm for the under 11s and between 2pm-6pm for over 11s.

The spokesman added: “There are roles for everyone who auditions.

“Both of these sessions, the workshop and audition, and subsequent rehearsals are held at Woodcock Theatre Arts, opposite Harborough Leisure Centre.
