FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions

I would like to be in the next pantomime. When are your auditions?

Auditions are held in June. Please contact Jane at jane.ellison@bt.com for details. Child cast members must be 10 years old unless specifically required for a principal role.

Can my child sit on my lap?

Yes, children up to 2 years can sit on your lap but please be aware that buggies and carseats cannot be taken into the auditorium. Please ask a member of front of house for where it can be stored.

Are there space for wheelchairs?

Yes, but spaces are limited to 2 wheelchairs per performance so book early. The front of house team will be there to give any assistance needed.

Do card payments incur a booking fee?

Yes, we are sorry to say they do.

I am not a performer but would like to get involved. Who do I contact?

We are always looking for helpers in all areas including backstage, front of house and the set up. Please contact Jane at  jane.ellison@bt.com if you would like to join the team.

Is it suitable for very young children?

It does rather depend on the child but generally aged two and upwards is best. It is a great introduction to theatre as it really doesn’t matter if they are not completely quiet in fact we positively encourage it!

Can I take photographs?

No! Copyright and child protection laws forbid it.

How do I organise a birthday call out?

Contact one of the front of house staff on arrival.
