The Playhouse theatre in Weston will hold auditions for this year’s pantomime next month.

Children aged seven to 15 are invited to showcase their talents on September 23 with places in the theatre’s production of Snow White & The Seven Dwarfs up for grabs.

Successful performers could earn a spot in the junior ensemble for the show which will run at the High Street theatre from December 13 to January 5.

Auditions will take place at the Grand Pier in Marine Parade from 10am-5pm.

The headline performers in this year’s pantomime include singer Lucy Kane as Snow White, Linda Lusardi as the Wicked Queen and entertainer Mike Goble as Muddles.

Performers are asked to take suitable dancewear and water, although no branded dance school attire is permitted.
