New Article - ACTORS WANTED for Snow White Satire – ADULT PANTOMIME

Recommended Posts

Deadline for application submission: Midday Tuesday 9th May 2017

Auditions: 12:30 – 5:30 Sunday 14th April 2017

Location: SY13 2AS (same for first performances)

Our Aim:

A unique adaptation of the classic fairytale, strictly for adults and not for the easily offended. A 17-strong cast is sought for shows beginning in October 2017 (dates to be confirmed). There will be no compensation for the first few shows. However, the aim is to perform between 8 and 10 shows between October and December 2017 at village halls in the Shropshire area, to trial the reception, before taking the performance to major venues throughout 2018. Once in major venues, performances will be paid work.

We are just starting out in this business but are extremely passionate about entertaining audiences, particularly with laughter. The writer of the production is an experienced writer, who has published several novels. His interest lies in comedy, meaning the show will be great fun to be a part of! On completion of a successful tour, further works will be written (a second already has been) and it would be preferable to develop good working relationships with reliable actors/actresses/stage hands, so that they can be called upon in the future. We're friendly people and we want to find success for us and for you, whilst enjoying ourselves along the way.

The Show:

The storyline follows 'Dickey', a cheeky chappy, who is trying to get into Snow White's knickers. The only way he can do that is to become a Prince, as she couldn't settle for anyone less. He embarks on his funny journey to achieve this, and meets several crude and colourful characters along the way! Everyone seems just as they do in the classic telling, until they open their mouths of course! It's fun and laughter all the way, with a bit of rudeness thrown in!

The show should be around an hour and three quarters in length, depending on whether everybody sticks to their lines! If you make a slight mistake, or forget the odd line, that's okay, just be aware that Dickey will be rushing on stage to jokingly admonish you in front of the audience!

A Final Word:

The show has great potential. If we start off small, and gather together a reliable, enthusiastic group, we will only get bigger and better. This is a niche market and if we pull it off, we could really reach a climax.

Please Note: frequent sexual speak and bad language
