Sheffield Theatres and their partners Evolution Pantomimes are searching for girls to be part of the junior ensemble for Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, this year’s Lyceum family pantomime.

The young ensemble will perform alongside Coronation Street’s Wendi Peters, children’s favourite Phil Gallagher (CBeebies’ Mister Maker) and Sheffield pantomime legend Damian Williams.

Auditions will take place on Sunday (June 19) at the Lyceum Theatre, Sheffield. Registration will take place from 10.30am, with the auditions starting at 11am. Auditions are expected to last approximately two hours but those who are successful may need to stay longer.

Auditionees should arrive at the main entrance of the Lyceum Theatre in Tudor Square with a parent (for completion of registration paperwork) and must bring a completed application form with them, available to download from sheffieldtheatres.co.uk. Unaccompanied girls may be turned away and unable to audition.

The audition is for the dancing ensemble, so all those attending should wear comfortable clothes and soft/dance shoes (not bare feet) and bring bottled drinking water.

Girls who wish to audition must be between the ages of 9 and 15 on September 1 and must be 5ft 4in or shorter. Successful youngsters must be available throughout the entire rehearsal and production period from Saturday, November 25 to Sunday, January 8, 2017.

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is the tenth pantomime that Sheffield Theatres will co-produce with Evolution Pantomimes and follows on from last year's box office record-breaking production of Aladdin.
