The professional production of Aladdin will run from December 7 to December 31 at the Waddon Leisure Centre, which will be converted into a 400-seat theatre especially for the occasion.

At this Sunday’s auditions for the junior ensemble, the producers are looking for talented dancers and performers with strong experience in drama and singing. Auditionees should be aged between nine and 15 years old and be no taller than 5ft 5in.

Successful auditionees will get the exciting opportunity to work with a professional director, choreographer and cast, and will get invaluable experience performing professionally.

Eddie Dredge, the director of Aladdin, said: “We are searching for outstanding local talent to perform in this year’s Croydon pantomime spectacular Aladdin.

“We are looking to assemble a fantastically talented juvenile chorus that will wow local audiences. This is an amazing opportunity for talented performers from the Croydon community to take part in a fully professional production where they will work alongside a star name and professional West End performers.”

Successful applicants should be aware that total commitment to the rehearsal period and assigned performance dates is expected.
