This year the pantomime is The Pied Piper and we seek to find a band of thespians that would like to lead this show. The characters we are looking to fill are:

Pied Piper

This is the baddie. He likes to remind you that this is his show. He is quite clever and witty. He spend some of his time pretending to be good but he doesn't convince everyone.

Male or Female aged 30 +

Miss D

This is the pantomime dame. She is a school teacher and likes to engage with audience in “teacher mode”.

Male 50 +

Billy

This is the pantomime idiot. He likes to cause mischief and mess around. He also engages with the audience. This character sings.

Male 18 - 40

Jack

This is the principal boy. He is Billy's brother. He is always late and is often a little silly like his brother. He is friends with Gillian.This character sings.

Male or Female 16 - 40

Gillian

This is the principal girl. She is daughter of the doctor and is also friends with Jack. She is intelligent and helpful.

Female 16 - 40

Doctor

This is the local doctor and father to Gillian. He is involved in the occasional doctor doctor joke and is in love with Miss D.

Male 40 +

Fairy

This is the bubbly whilst ditsy fairy. Her role in act one is to narrate during some of the scenes. She eventually joins the rest of the goodies on their journey to save the day.

Female any age

Ratty

This is the baddies sidekick. They appear in act one and it is soon apparent that they are deaf in one ear. This is incorporated into the dialogue. They are accidentally witty and a good contrast from pied piper.

Male or Female aged 30 +

Bubble and Squeak

These two are the pantomime idiots. Life has decided that these two are bad from the start. They start the show as two school bullies and when they meet pied piper, they offer their services.

Make or female any age

Voice of the Mountain King

This is a role that will be pre recorded. This character will feature throughout the show and so would be a good character role for somebody with great depth to their voice. This person needn't be available for show week but would be required to attend some rehearsals and be available to re-record incase the script was to evolve.

Male any age

All of these roles are required to sing as part of a group but the parts that specify singing are in a solo or duet. More details are to follow.
