The Waterworks Players’ next production is James Barry’s Snow White & The Seven Dwarfs, a British pantomime to celebrate the holiday season. Beloved by children and adults alike, pantomimes are as much a part of Christmas throughout the British Isles as singing carols, trimming the tree, and exchanging presents. As a popular form of theater, pantomime combines song, dance, and slapstick comedy loosely based on traditional children’s stories.
Auditions will be held at 7:00 pm on Sunday and Monday, October 17th & 18th, at the Waterworks Theatre building (25 SMI Way, Farmville), and consist of cold readings from the script. Performers should be comfortable performing for children, interacting with the audience, and singing (if you can sing in the shower, you can do this). Rehearsals will begin November 1st.
We need a cast of around 20. There are many roles for both males and females over 12 years old. The show runs on Friday evenings (December 3rd & 10th) and two shows on Saturday afternoons (December 4th & 11th). For more information or to volunteer, contact the Waterworks Players at 434-392-3452 or https://waterworksplayers.org/.
Waterworks Players requires that all performers are fully vaccinated before beginning rehearsals. Everyone should wear a mask or equivalent face covering (nose and mouth) to auditions. We will discuss additional Covid policies at the auditions; we continue to monitor the situation and want to provide a safe environment as we continue to offer live theatre.
Come out and help Waterworks continue this holiday tradition for Southside Virginia!
