Chance to shine

Children from the region are being invited to audition for a role in Nativity! The Musical.

The boys and girls will play the pupils of Oakmoor School, rivals to St Bernadette’s, on stage at The Marlowe Theatre, Canterbury, from Wednesday 13 to Sunday 17 November.

Casting Directors Keston & Keston are looking for boys and girls aged between nine and 12 (by 1 September), who are no taller than 4ft 7in (140cm). They should live within a one-hour commute from The Marlowe and be able to perform on all dates.

Debbie Isitt, Creator and Director of Nativity!, said the children should also be: “Characterful but disciplined, with strong singing, acting and dance skills and a passion for performing.”

Canterbury auditions take place on Thursday 30 May. Applications should be made through Keston & Keston.

Feel-good, funny and full of joy, Nativity! The Musical tells of St Bernadette’s School’s attempts to retell the traditional Christmas story in their own inimitable style. The stage version, which was a big success on tour and in London last year, features all the songs from the films, plus new ones.
