We are delighted to announce the application period for the Children's Chorus Audition for Hansel and Gretel is now open for young people aged 10-16.
Auditions will take place on Saturday July 16th at the Methodist Church (main hall), St. Edmunds Church St, Salisbury SP1 1EF. There will be two 50-minute group auditions at 2pm and 3pm. You must pre-register to take part.
For the cast 28 children will be chosen (two casts of 14) to work alongside international singers and leading music and stage directors, who have performed all over the world. The children's cast will be trained in professional theatre and perform in a fully staged operatic production of Hansel and Gretel at the festival in October 2017. BBC Radio Wiltshire will be documenting the children’s journeys.
No previous experience is necessary, just a desire to sing, act and perform in theatre.
