Talented Calderdale youngsters are being encouraged to audition for the Victoria Theatre’s Christmas pantomime production.

This year’s show will be the much-loved tale of Jack and the Beanstalk and the theatre are hoping that youngsters with that extra special star quality will join the cast as the junior chorus.

Children between the ages of nine and sixteen are being invited to tread the boards to audition at the Victoria Theatre.

Steve Boden, Managing Director of Imagine Theatre, producers of the pantomime, said: “The open audition for the children is a great way of getting the local community involved in the production and auditioning youngsters for the panto is always a lot of fun, but also a real challenge as we see so much talent.

“We are looking for children with the ‘x-factor’ – that something special that makes them stand out from the crowd.”

Auditions will take place on Sunday September 7, at 9.30am and the show will run from Saturday December 13 2014 to Sunday 4 January.
