Charlie & The Chocolate Factory Auditions

We are very excited that in the Summer Season we are staging an exciting adaptation of Charlie & the Chocolate Factory.

This is a version written by Richard George and Directed by Barney McElholm.

This is a Young Production Company show that will give members aged 5-12 yrs an opportunity to audition for and (if successful) perform in a show for our main theatre at The Dream Factory.

Young Production Company is a fantastic opportunity for our youngest members to take responsibility for their own production and for those with previous experience to push themselves even further. It is a truly magical story with lots of interesting roles, we are incredibly excited about the show and would love to encourage you all to audition.

We are looking for high energy and clearly spoken performers for this larger than life adaptation of Roald Dahl’s classic story.

Can’t wait to see you at the audition!

Date: Monday 5th March
Where: The Dream Factory, Warwick
Time: Age 5-7 yrs 5pm-6pm
Age 8-12 yrs 6pm-7pm
