Casting call for Cinderella Characters

Could you be Cinderella, Buttons, one of the Ugly Sisters or perhaps another character in the all-time favourite pantomime of Cinderella?

If your answer is ‘Yes’ and you are 16 years or over, then the Lowestoft Players would love to hear from you. They are currently casting for their 56th annual pantomime to be staged at The Marina Theatre, Lowestoft in January 2024.

Cinderella is one of The Lowestoft Players’ most popular pantomimes and the production team are looking for a varied and diverse cast to tell this enchanting and magical story. Although everyone knows the story of Cinderella the script for 2024 is original, comical and fun.

Having already cast their super talented young performers, the popular performing society are seeking to form a company of all ages to feature in this seasonal spectacular. Particular emphasis will be placed on bold characterisation, strong singing and an ability to move.

Straight from the stage from playing the leading role of Buddy in Elf The Musical with The Lowestoft Players, the multi-talented Ric Gardner-Collis will be Co-Directing this production. He told us

“Working with the Lowestoft Players is always a joy and audience members are always constantly amazed at the professionalism of our shows. For auditions we welcome members new and old.”
