Young actors wanted to star in Garrick Panto!

Lichfield Garrick will set sail to Neverland with the swashbuckling Pantomime adventure, Peter Pan, later this year. In advance of the performance, Lichfield Garrick is searching for young local performers to join the lost boys, on their adventures in the magical world, Neverland.
Lichfield Garrick is seeking young performers, both male and female, to audition to be part of the juvenile cast for this year’s pantomime, Peter Pan.  The Young Company are an integral part of this, our most spectacular production, and we look forward to working with some of the most talented young performers in our area.

They  are looking for girls between the ages of 8-13 (under 5 ft 4) and boys between the ages of 9-15 with strong acting and some movement skills, though previous stage experience is not essential.
Due to government regulations regarding COVID-19, they will be conducting auditions in a different way than we have done in the past. This year they are inviting applicants to submit videos as their audition.

Please visit www.lichfieldgarrick.com/get-involved/juvenile-cast-2020/ for more information, including a video audition guide and application form.  All audition videos and application forms must be sent to education@lichfieldgarrick.com by Sunday 7th June.

Libby Buick recalls her time in the Juvenile Panto Cast. 

“ I have successfully auditioned for three of the Garrick pantomimes ; my first being Sleeping Beauty. Performing on stage with an amazing cast was a fabulous opportunity and a brilliant experience. The backstage crew were friendly and supportive; they were always professional and always helped us when needed.  

I made many new friends on my pantomime journey and learnt so much about theatre life. Being a member of the junior ensemble takes dedication and commitment but is also great fun and very rewarding. If anyone has the opportunity to audition for a pantomime at the Lichfield Garrick Theatre do not hesitate to do so.

I will remember my magical Christmas’ at the Garrick as they were just the most amazing and exciting times and I look back on them fondly.”

All Juvenile audition videos submitted to the theatre will be held securely on the Garrick  network, they will only be shown to members of staff or creative staff that it is deemed necessary by the Theatre’s Safeguarding Team to do so.

Everyone who submits an audition video should hear back from the theatre by July 2020.

Best of Luck in your audition, the Garrick are looking forward to hearing from you soon!

  1. Hello. I just wanted to ask are females allowed to audition for Lost Boys as it states on the Audition Guide female auditionees are to submit just the dance audition video. Male auditionees are to submit both script and dance videos.

    Many Thanks

    1. Hi Sarah, we’ve just submitted the press release on behalf of the Garrick so I’m afraid we don’t know. The best think to do would be to email the team at the Garrick, we are sure they wil get back to you. Their email is: Garrick@lichfieldgarrick.com I hope this helps and please let us know what the reply is – interesting! Regards, the Citylife in Lichfield team.
