Nativity! The Musical, from, Jamie Wilson, Entertainment One (eOne), Ramin Sabi and Belgrade Theatre Coventry is returning on a UK tour this year and is seeking children to audition for the Scottish leg of that tour.
Children love to star in a Nativity play, and at St Bernadette’s School they’ve decided to mount a musical version! Join teacher Mr Maddens and his crazy assistant Mr Poppy as they struggle with hilarious children, and a whole lot of sparkle and shine to make everyone’s Christmas wish come true. The show features favourite sing-a-long songs including Sparkle and Shine, Nazareth and One Night One Moment.
Young hopefuls from across the country will have a chance to shine as one of the children from the show. Auditions for both Glasgow and Edinburgh gigs will be held in The Studio, 22 Potterrow Edinburgh on Saturday 23 June from 10am-6pm. Children will need to be available to play both venues whose dates are:
Wednesday 7 - Sunday 11 November King’s Theatre in Glasgow
Wednesday 28 November - Sunday 2 December the Festival Theatre in Edinburgh
The auditioning criteria is as follows:
• Children must be age 9-12 years old by 1st September 2018
• Strictly no taller than 4ft 7inches
• Children must live within 45 miles commute to the venue and be available to perform the playing dates of the venue they are auditioning for – tour dates listed below
• Characterful but disciplined children with strong singing, acting and movement skills and with a passion for performing
Nativity! The Musical is written and directed by the creator and director of the blockbuster film series, Debbie Isitt. Debbie said, “We are looking for characterful but disciplined children who can 'act' as snobby and superior and yet have a sense of fun and can give over the top performances if required. We need the children to have good movement ability - marching, basic choreography and have excellent posture. They should also be able to sing confidently, have basic acting ability and enjoy performing”.
To audition, children must be pre-registered with Keston and Keston the Children’s Regional Casting Directors via the iOS App ‘Keston Casting- downloadable’ which can be downloaded for free via the app store or registration can be via the website www.kestonandkestoncasting.com.
