Pantomime Company would like to welcome a new face to the Production team for our next Panto – ‘Beauty and the Beast’.

Kind-hearted and innocent – as obvious. (Principal Girl) Strong singer with dance ability. Minimum age 16
Leading Male character – initially a romantic prince – then transformed into the Beast. Strong singing voice. Minimum age 16
Our glamorous baddie – an immortal wicked enchantress. Younger and more attractive than the typical witch character. (Female) Strong character actress/singer. Minimum age 16
Female Character part. Housekeeper to the Prince/Beast. In Act 2 operates a puppet character. Actress/Singer minimum age 30
COMTE DE LA BRAR
Male Character part. French Valet to the Prince/Beast. Exaggerated French accent. In Act 2 operates a Puppet character. Actor/Singer minimum age 20
Belle’s father – a slightly eccentric scientist. Jovial and kind-hearted, but not strong enough to stand up to his two elder daughters. Mature Male Character actor – some comedy Age 40+
Casanova-type “hunk” – new-comer to the village. A conceited, arrogant and self-opinionated lothario – big on muscles, but small in the brain department! (Male) Comedy baddie very much in the mould of ‘Gaston’ – either a bodybuilder type or one with fake muscles! Possibly fake German accent! Min age 18
Comedy sidekick to Brat – knockabout comedy! Min Age 16
LO-LO & CLO-CLO
Belle’s two older sisters – great comedy roles for 2 girls. A couple of tasteless “madams” with outrageous clothes/make-up, who flounce about thinking they’re “it”, but are selfish, greedy and spoilt. Referred to in the script as “the Sisters”, but these are very different to the “Ugly Sisters” in Cinderella and should definitely not be played as dames. (Female Singers/Dancers – min age 18)
BENNIE LE BON-BON
Young Comedian the Dame’s silly son – typical ‘Hiya Kids’ part
A date for Dance/Chorus auditions has already been fixed – these will be held on Sunday July 8th in the afternoon – more details of times and how to apply will follow over the next couple of months.
