Sleeping Beauty Pantomime Auditions New Mills Art Theatre

Your chance to step into Panto Land at New Mils Art Theatre starts next week, as preparations for 2023 production of Sleeping Beauty begin.

To find out more about Sleeping Beauty come along to our Get-Together on Monday, 5 September at 7.30pm at New Mills Art Theatre, Jodrell Street, SK22 3HJ. You will meet our production team led by Director, Sheryl Haydock-Howorth, Choreographer, Cathryn Yates and Musical Director, Claire Sweeney – all very experienced in pantomime and all types of musical theatre. Our team will talk about the story of Sleeping Beauty, characters, music, choreography and will answer all your questions.  Auditions will be held later in September and the dates will be announced at the Get-Together.  Sleeping Beauty will run over two weekends with performances on 3rd, 4th, 5th & 10th, 11th February 2023.

If you fancy auditioning for a principal part, there are plenty to choose from:  King Cactus and Queen Marigold, Princess Rose and Prince Alexis, panto dame Nurse Hettie Harpic, daft comedy duo Fetch and Carrie, Bad Witch Hazel and her assistant Egor – and good magic provided by Good Fairy Lilac and her five trainee rainbow fairies!  We also need a strong ensemble of chorus and dancers to include adults and children.

If you would like more information or you are unable to attend our Get-Together, a friend or family member can register for you, or please contact us on Tel: 07983 344 862 or Email:

If performing is not for you, but you would like to be part of the production, please still come along to our Get-Together or contact us as above.  You could join our Stage Crew, Technical or Front of House teams who are all volunteers, committed to providing high quality live entertainment at the Art Theatre for many years.
