PANTO 2021

Panto is back! (Ohhh yes it is!)

Treasure Island will be performed at Holyport Memorial Hall from Thursday 9th - Sunday 12th December 2021.

Auditions

Open auditions will be held at Waldeck House, Maidenhead on Sunday 1st August from 2pm

Important info:

  • To keep everyone safe, there will be a reduced cast this year, and this unfortunately means we won't be able to offer any roles to under 16s.

  • There will be an ensemble/chorus, if you are interested in being in the chorus then you don't need to audition, but please register your interest with Emma Zuccaro here.

  • In addition to the audition we would like you to create a short back story (10 lines or so) for the character(s) you are wishing to try out for which you will present to us as the character.

  • If you are cast you will be expected to become a member of Maidenhead Drama Guild for insurance purposes (details here) and pay a show and script fee (TBC).
