Open auditions for Zorro The Panto

Open auditions, talking place on Sunday Sept 14th, at 1pm, at our usual rehearsal venue of Chestnut Community Centre, Poplar Close, Brixham, TQ5 0SA

If you are unable to attend this date and would like to considered, please contact for an alternative auditions date to be arranged.

These are panto auditions, for a panto with a difference. This show remains a family-friendly production as with all our shows, but combines traditional panto, with the glamour of a Vegas-style show, to create an all new type of show, based on the legend of the Mexican bandit, Zorro.

Auditions are open to all, regardless of age and experience, what we do require is that you are reliable, a good timekeeper for rehearsals.

Unusually for this show, we are looking for performers aged 7 and upwards for the childrens chorus, as opposed to simply adults, for dancing and singing. All children must be accompanied at rehearsals and shows by a parent or legal guardian. (free coffee is available, or you might consider being in the show yourself too!)

Actors - a variety of roles are required, from leads to chorus. Some of the principal actors will also be required to sing and dance.

Singers- we are looking for solo and chorus singers.

Dancers- we are looking for dancers, or people willing to dance. You will need to be able to learn a variety of choreography, either solo or ensemble.

Rehearsals run on Sunday afternoons 1 - 4pm, and Wednesdays 7 - 9.30pm. If you need extra help with singing or dancing, extra rehearsals may be arranged for those involved in a specific scene or act.

We do not charge a joining fee or an audition fee. We do ask that each member contributes £1 per rehearsal, (children 50p) which goes directly into paying for the rent of our rehearsal hall. Free teas, coffees, juice and biscuits are provided for the use of all.

We are an award winning, family-friendly, completely non-profit, community-based theatre company, from the beautiful fishing port of Brixham; Devon (in South West England).

We perform theatre shows in Brixham, around Torbay, and South Devon, based on historical events, classical stories and mythology.

We were founded in late 2005 by two Brixham performers, and performed our first production in the summer of 2006. Since then we have gone from strength to strength, and are now growing rapidly, with awards won and a rapidly increasing member base, an appearance on a national BBC 1 TV programme, and sponsorship from London for our recent non-musical adaptation of Les Miserables.

New members are always welcomed regardless of their background, experience, beliefs or nationality; we provide an exciting hobby, performance experience and education, and a friendly, safe, inclusive atmosphere. We are not a "childrens" group, and in general require our members to be aged 16 (to 116!!!!), however younger performers may be accepted for some shows, with the strict requirement that they are accompanied by a parent or legal guardian at all times.
