Cinderella Panto Auditions at New Mills Art Theatre

Cinderella Panto Auditions at New Mills Art Theatre

Could this be your chance to tread the boards on the Art Theatre stage? Our next panto is Cinderella by Alan Frayn – a classic tale given the full pantomime treatment!

To find out more about our panto and meet the production team - come along to our Get-Together on Monday, 6 September at 7.30pm at New Mills Art Theatre, Jodrell Street, SK22 3HJ.

Returning to panto land at the Art Theatre are Rob Brittles as Director and Cathryn Yates as Choreographer. Also, we welcome our new Musical Director, Claire Sweeney, who brings a wealth of experience in all types of musical theatre - Claire was MD for the highly successful production of the Sound of Music at the Art Theatre in 2019. Our team will talk about the story of Cinderella, 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. Cinderella will run over 2 weekends with performances on 28th, 29th & 30th January and 4th & 5th February 2022.


If you fancy auditioning for a principal part, there are plenty to choose from:

  • Faithful Buttons - who looks out for poor Cinderella, treated so badly by the Ugly Sisters, Gertrude and Grizelda
  • Prince Charming - his valet Dandini and the daft comedy duo Bodget and Leggett
  • not to forget the Fairy Godmother - whose magic helps the story along.
  • We also need a strong company/ensemble of chorus and dancers to include adults and children.

After the success of our last panto (Hansel and Gretel) we picked up three Association of Community Theatre (ACT) awards:

  • Stewart Bowden - for the Most Creative Comic Portrayal
  • Company for the Most Accomplished Adult Ensemble
  • Young Ross Provart - the Debut Award in a Non-Principal Role


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 over 50 years.
