Cinderella panto crew in Arenacasting call

It may be the middle of summer, but panto time is not far away and the Alban Arena is on the search for local talent to star in this year’s show, Cinderella.

Gareth Gates and Andy Day of Cbeebies fame are the marquee names signed up for this year’s seasonal show, but youngsters are needed for supporting roles.

An audition day has been organised at the St Albans venue on Sunday, with registration at 11am and the serious business starting soon after.

If you want to be involved, entrance will be through the main theatre door and you will be taught an audition routine on the day.

You should come wearing comfortable clothes and soft/dance shoes, and you’re welcome to bring water but no food or other drinks.

To audition you must be between eight and 15 years old on September 1.

The panto itself runs from Saturday, November 23 through to Sunday, January 5. Find out more at
