Hi my daughters not 12 until the 17th December would she beable to audition. Millie did the panto 2 years ago and she loved it. Kind regards Caroline's picture

Dear Caroline, The routines are designed for those aged 12 plus and that the age increase is due to the complexity of the routines. However, we have no problem with your daughter's application to attend the audition so as long as she is 12 before the end of the run. Please do apply via the online form. Best wishes Sian Dudley Head of Marketing and Communications
