Stars of the future needed for Pantomime

July 31, 2011 by  

Motherwell Theatre is searching for the stars of tomorrow as it gets set to recruit a number of young dancers to star in their pantomime version of Beauty and the Beast.

The theatre puts on a Pantomime each year, in conjunction with Spillers Pantomimes and this year the search is on to find dancers who live in North Lanarkshire and are over the age of six. The annual Motherwell Theatre pantomime is a highlight in the North Lanarkshire events calendar and the theatre has already sold in excess of 9,000 tickets for the show. As well as being a big cultural draw, the pantomime is a sound commercial opportunity, generating revenue from the sales of programmes produced using brochure printers, often in the local area thus helping boost local businesses too.

Coatbridge, Motherwell and the surrounding areas are being called upon to encourage their young dancers to attend open auditions for the Pantomime on Wednesday 31st August. The auditions will be held at Ravenscraig Regional Sports Facility and these are expected to attract a lot of attention from dancers wishing to fulfil their dream of dancing on stage with a professional pantomime company, as well as being immortalised in print via the programme.

Beauty and the Beast is set to run at Motherwell Theatre from 21st November 2011 until 3rd January 2012 and rehearsals for the dancers who are successful in their auditions begin in early November.

The Pantomime will be advertised throughout Coatbridge, using a mix of traditional and digital media. Posters always play a large part in the promotion of productions at Motherwell Theatre and the added draw of local children being involved is sure to make the production a huge success.
