PANTO AUDITIONS

PLEASE NOTE: if you are cast we will ask you to join RCTC. It’s just $10 for the year. This covers you for insurance purposes and also means you will get information about upcoming events, auditions and so on.

REHEARSALS:

Mostly at the Studio, 10660 City Parkway, although October 6th, 7th, 13th and 14th will be held at Newton Cultural Centre.

Rehearsals will begin in mid – late September and will be held Saturdays and Sundays 10 am – 3 pm approx. We suggest you bring snacks and lunch.

We ask that you make sure you have no conflicts with either rehearsals or performances BEFORE you audition.

We expect our panto people to come to rehearsal on or before their call time, ready to work. We have a lot of fun but at the end of the day it’s our goal to create a wondrous piece of theatre and to do that we need everyone to be committed to the project.
