NOELENE REES and HER PANTO TEAM 

ARE HOLDING
PANTOMIME AUDITIONS
at the Rondo
THE FIRST WEEKEND IN SEPTEMBER

 

Santa gets puffed out at the Aurora Borealis Feativaal and the Doctor sends Santa on a holiday. But Tootsie Roll, (baddy) annoyed at not being invited to the Festivaal decides to send Santa off on a different holiday. We follow Brandy Snapp (the Pantomime Dame) and the Elves as they go about their duties while Santa is “On Holidays” and then through the trials and tribulations as they discover they have reindeer but no Santa.

We then follow them around the world as they try to find Santa. They go to China, India and then Australia. Here they discover Santa is being looked after by the good people of Christmas Creek, after being brought in to see the Doctor. He was found wandering the bush, sunburnt and with a bump on the head causing memory loss. There is a Carnival due to happen and the school kids are preparing for a concert.  The songs jog Santa’s memory, Tootsie is forgiven and decides to stay in Australia. The Others go back to the North pole and Christmas is again back on track.

There is the opportunity for a lot of people to have lines as we jump from scene to scene and country to country. This is to allow for costume changes. Not everyone will be in every scene or dance. There is enough work to go around never fear.

Audition expectations..

Everyone will be asked to sing a short piece.

If auditioning for Brandy or Tootsie please prepare a 1 min song of your own choice that best displays your vocal abilities. Play back ability will be available for iPod and usb .

A short movement/dance piece will be taught on the day. It will then be preformed in small groups.

For the dancers the chorry will be a little harder.

Don’t stress about the chorry just try, do the best you can. The choreographer is more interested in seeing you try and have a go than if you get all the steps perfect. Dancers your expectations are a little higher as you have had dance training but again if it’s above your level of training just have a go.

If you can do any tricks – cartwheels. Splits. Tumble skills, the worm – you will be asked to show them off at the end of you dance audition. If you don’t have any that’s ok. This is to find out who can do what.

You will be asked to read a short passage from the script. This will be given to you on the day.

Again, don’t stress. The director is looking for potential not perfection.
