We are looking for 4 boys aged 7 or 8 years old to be a small but significant part of our acting company for this Christmas’s production of INTO THE WOODS.

One boy is needed per performance, the four will share the role on a rota meaning two shows per week, each.

They won’t have much in the way of spoken lines but each boy will have to be able to do two things well: burst into tears and act getting upset convincingly and also to sit (relatively) still whilst enthralled throughout a whole performance. 

There’s no preparation needed for the audition and it will be held in small groups where our Assistant Director, Kate, will play some games with the children and get to know them in a fun and non-pressured way.

Boys must be available between 23rd November 2015 and 16th January 2016 and live within easy traveling distance of the theatre.
