Annual Pantomime Dance Auditions

This year we are looking for dancers to perform in our Derby LIVE & Paul Holman Associates annual pantomime of Aladdin, performed in the brand new Derby Arena!

For the part we require girls aged between 8 and 11 years with a maximum height of 4’11” who reach the equivalent standard of ISTD Grade One in Ballet, Tap and Modern following a recognised syllabus (IDTA, ISTD, RAD etc) and should also have strong performance skills.

The auditions will be held at Derby Arena (Infield), Royal Way, Pride Park, Derby, DE24 8JB on Sunday 20 September 2015. Registration is at 9:00am.

Girls attending auditions must be accompanied and must have a valid signed parental permission form. If they are not attending with their own parent/guardian, this form can be obtained by emailing Fiona Watson at and must be bought along on the day.

When attending the audition girls must bring all relevant shoes and be prepared to stay for some hours if your child is recalled for the final shortlist.

In order to be successful for the part, children MUST be available for the whole of the rehearsal and performance period. Rehearsals start from Thursday 26 Nov until the opening of the pantomime on Monday 7 Dec. The show is performed from Monday 7 Dec – Sun 3 Jan.
Successful children must also live within a maximum of 30 minutes traveling distance from the arena.
