“We’ve staged Cinderella on nine previous occasions” said James Atkin, CoDirector of Cinderella 2024.

"1968, 1976, 1983, 1989, 1994, 1999, 2005, 2012 and 2018! Cinderella is always a very popular choice for performers and our wonderful audiences.”

For 2024, Cinderella will be a fast-moving comedy pantomime with toe-tapping music, stunning scenery and costumes, special effects, hilarious slapstick comedy and plenty of audience participation to entertain and enchant everyone. Buttons, Cinders and her two Ugly Sisters, along with a host of crazy characters will be taking theatre-goers on a roller coaster ride of mayhem and madcap merriment.

It has become traditional for a pantomime to include junior performers, hence the search for talented and confident children for this production. Aged between six to 16 years (at the time of performing), a good level of singing and under 5’2" (1.57m) are the audition requirements.

Junior auditions will be held on Sunday 3 September 2023 at the Players Theatre, Battery Green Road, Lowestoft NR34 1DE. Registration will start at 9.30am and the auditions will run from 10.00am until around mid-day.

To prepare, hopefuls will need to learn the first verse and the chorus of ‘Treat People with Kindness’ by Harry Styles and wear something comfortable for movement during the audition.
