Looking for Snow White in Tyneside

Peter Lathan

Enchanted Entertainment, the producer of the Tyne Theatre and Opera House’s 2017 panto, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, is looking for a Snow White. They hope to find a talented 18+ girl from the region to play the Principal Girl alongside Collabro’s Matt Pagan, who will be playing the Prince, and Geordie comics Charlie Richmond and Lewis Denny.

The open audition will be held on Sunday 2 July at the theatre in Newcastle’s Westgate Road. Auditionees should arrive in time to register from 10:30 and the actual audition will begin at 11:00. They will be expected to stay all day. Any recalls will be the following day, Monday 3 July.

There will be a singing and an acting audition. Would-be Snow Whites must bring a song (with backing track) to sing in front of the panel and then they will have to perform an extract from the show’s script.

The successful candidate must also be available from 27 November to 7 December for rehearsals and then from 8 to 31 December for the performances. There will be 43 performances in all.
