AFTER the rip-roaring success of its first drama festival, Burnham’s Princess Theatre Company is calling for youngsters to step up to its performance plate.

PTC is auditioning for two upcoming plays: ‘Dragged Up’, due to be performed on September 19, and ‘Out of the Mist’ (November 14).

Three boys and a girl around the age of 12 are wanted for ‘Dragged Up’ as well as at least six children of varying ages for ‘Out of the Mist’.

Kim Cook said: “This is a great opportunity for local children to get involved.

“‘Dragged Up’ is a comedy drama set in Yorkshire, 1974, during the three-day week.

“The children don’t have to actually be 12 but they need to look 12, and also need to master a Yorkshire accent.’

“‘Out of the Mist’ is in conjunction with Burnham RNLI, with all ticket sales going to the RNLI.
“It is a dramatisation of the history of the RNLI, so it’s not only a piece of entertaining drama but educational as well.

“This is a great opportunity for children who think they may want to try acting but are nervous of going for a big role.”

Auditions for both plays will be held at The Princess Theatre at 6pm on Tuesday (June 24). Budding actors should contact Kim Cook first on to register their interest and to receive further details.
