Stars of tomorrow tread the boards in Stoke

Steve Orme

Budding actors, singers and dancers can get a taste of what it's like to be part of a professionally run production at Stoke's Regent Theatre later this year.

Stage Experience is a two-week intensive project which involves a cast and crew rehearsing every day, building a set, sourcing props and making costumes.

Four performances of 1980s dance musical Footloose will be performed on the Regent stage in August.
Auditions will be held at the Victoria Hall, Stoke on Saturday, 5 May for 16- to 25-year-olds; and Saturday, 19 May for nine- to 15-year-olds.

Application forms are available from Stage Experience project manager Zoe Scott on 01782 211 222 or by emailing
