Keen to cast your spell on panto audience? Get involved
It’s panto audition season.
Oh yes, it is! And Comrie Drama have a number of roles to be filled for this year’s production - including that of Elvis!
The amateur dramatic group is welcoming all interested parties to come along to auditions for The Wizard of Oz this Sunday, September 3 in Comrie Parish Church hall, at 2pm.
Morag Mackintosh, of Comrie Drama, said: “We would like to audition any young people who would be interested in a role in the chorus - this is also the ideal place for any adults who are keen to have a go in panto but don’t fancy a bigger speaking role! There are quite a number of small parts as follows: chorus/minor roles, the Wizard, doctor, woodsman, gatekeeper, chamberlain, Munchkins, citizens of the Emerald City, winged monkeys and forest people.
“Then from 3pm to 4pm, those who would like to be considered for the principal roles can have a go. There are quite a number of adult parts, including Elvis.”
Morag continued:“The Comrie Panto is always a popular event an this could be your chance to be a part of the action.
“We would ask parents to accompany any child under 12 years to auditions, and all children under 16 will be given parental consent forms to be completed before rehearsals begin.”
