PERFORMANCE DATES: Weds 16th to Sunday 20th January 2019 (get in on Sun 13th January)
VENUE: The Rondo Theatre
A very traditional and funny pantomime with a variety of different roles which will be good fun for everyone involved. Lots of bad jokes, good versus evil, love, a cow, a spider and of course a giant at the top of the magically growing beanstalk. The story follows a very traditional narrative with lots of fun, singing, dancing & larger than life characters. The perfect panto to celebrate 100 years of Bath Drama!
Jack Trott (M or F)
Lazy but with a heart of gold. A dreamer. Lots of potential for comedy and singing.
Billy Trott (M or F)
Jack’s less than intelligent brother. Lots of silly word play. Comedic sidekick role.
Mrs Trott (M)
Traditional pantomime dame. Jack’s mum. Lots of innuendo and comedy. Very much a man playing a woman. Larger than life.
King Bernard the Bemused: (M)
A bit of a wimp. Scared of the giant.
Princess Rose (F)
A slightly rebellious royal. Lots of humour and opportunities for singing.
Giant Blunder: (M or F) Big scary giant. Thunderous voice. Slightly slow.
Mrs Plunder: (F) The giant’s wife. Evil. Does giants bidding.
Fairy Flora: (F) Good fairy. Speaks in rhyme.
Daisy the Cow: Fun skin part for 2 energetic people. Involves lots of slapstick routines and a tap dance. M or F x2
Chorus of Villagers, Sprites, Skeletons, Soldiers, Puppets
Rehearsals will start in mid-October and will be on most Sundays (2pm – 7pm) and one evening a week which will increase nearer to production week.
The auditions will be relatively informal. You will be required to move about and get a few scenes on their feet. Everybody will get the opportunity to read for the part they are interested in. Singing may be involved. Anyone is welcome to come and audition – you do not have to be experienced.
We look forward to meeting you all soon.
Please email Luke John Emmett to register your interest and also to give an idea of what parts you may be interested in auditioning for.
