Young performers are being invited to attend auditions in Welwyn Garden City for a top youth theatre school’s big summer show.
Top Hat Youth Theatre is holding auditions on Sunday at Harwood Hill School, in Welwyn Garden City, for 12 to 18-year-olds who want to be appear in Little Shop of Horrors, which will be staged at Hertford Theatre on June 16-17.
The auditions are free, but budding cast members must attend the full two-hour session, from 2.30pm to 4.30pm.
There is nothing to prepare. Those auditioning will be taught a short dance routine, a song and will do some acting, too.
If you are selected to join the cast, then rehearsals take place on Monday evenings in Hertfordshire.
Warren Bacci, principal of Top Hat Stage School, said: “We are looking for actors, singers and dancers for our production. No experience is necessary, just bags of energy and enthusiasm.
“At Top Hat we believe that everyone is part of the show, not divided into principals and chorus.
“Therefore everyone involved in a Top Hat production is given lines, songs and dances, this truly is a team effort and everyone is encouraged to get involved.
“We also have a full live band for all our Youth Theatre productions and an amazing set.”
He added: “We started the Youth Theatre Group in response to the local demand for high quality shows performed to live bands in true West End style.
“We have already put on Billy Elliot, Rent and We Will Rock You and are really excited about staging our version of Little Shop of Horrors this summer.”
