Wilburton Theatre Group announces auditions for the 2021 pantomime

"The Emperor's New Clothes"


Philippa Smith

Our 2021 pantomime is to be directed by Ann Sherwood and Maureen Hutter. This panto has 12 principal parts, a chorus and additional small parts. Packed with plenty of songs and some dancing plus, of course, the infamous stylish sets that all help to make Wilburton Panto what it is, a jolly show should lie ahead.

We always welcome new members both on stage and behind the scenes and we will certainly need set builders, backstage crew, set painters and chaperones. We would also like to encourage young people who have an interest in backstage activities to take part and assist our experienced team.

We need to increase our number of chaperones so we would definitely like to hear from you if you already have a licence or wish to become a chaperone.

 Auditions, rehearsals and performances at St. Peter's Hall, 41 High Street, Wilburton CB6 3RA with performances on December 9th, 10th and 11th, including a matinee on Saturday 11th.

Auditions are to be held as follows:

  • Tuesday 13th July at 7:30pm

  • Sunday 18th July at 2:30 pm

Evening rehearsals are scheduled to start on Tuesday 7th September with Sunday afternoon rehearsals starting on 7th November.

Intro Night & Auditions for


Music & Lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, Book by Peter Duchan; based on Nancy Savoca’s 1991 film starring River Phoenix.

Performances have been postponed to 2022 due to the ongoing pandemic with dates to be determined. Auditions, rehearsals and performances will be held at St. Peter's Hall, 41 High Street, Wilburton CB6 3RA.

Premiered in New York’s Off-Broadway in 2012, "Dogfight" is a bittersweet love story and a Cinderella gone-wrong tale set in San Francisco on November 21, 1963 – the day before the United States experienced a cataclysmic tragedy that would alter the country’s course forever. The action begins as a young US Marine returns from duty in Vietnam and remembers the young woman he met in 1963 before deploying with his buddies to the war.

Benj Pasek and Justin Paul were, of course, the musical brains behind the smash-hit film "The Greatest Showman" and the stage smash-hit "Dear Evan Hansen".  With Justin Hurwitz, they also co-wrote the Oscar-winning song “City of Stars” from "LaLa Land".

DeeDee Doke will direct "Dogfight". She is looking for:

  • A musical director who enjoys a variety of contemporary music styles + musicians (drums, keyboard, guitar and violin, if available)

  • An imaginative choreographer

  • A cast of 13 people including six women and seven men – all over 16 -- who will fall as much in love with the story and the music as DeeDee!

  • Stage techs.
