Pantomime 2021 – Beauty & the Beast

The Cresset and Stuart Morrison Productions are delighted to present our pantomime for 2021 – Beauty & The Beast!

This fantastic family pantomime brings everything you have come to expect from a Cresset panto; glittering sets, spectacular song and dance, plenty of audience participation – plus some truly terrible jokes!

After our 2020 show was cut short, we simply can’t wait to bring the magic of pantomime back to the stage. We hope you can join us!

Open auditions are being held on Sunday 5th September 2021.

This year we are looking for young dancers, and actor / singers to join our company and perform alongside the professional cast in Beauty & the Beast.

The auditions will be run by the show’s Director Stuart Morrison, and Choreographer Monique Benoiton-Smith. Applicants will learn and perform a piece of choreography and  or singing / acting. Auditionees will be notified of the outcomes on Monday 6 September.

For those who are successful, performing in The Cresset pantomime is a fantastic opportunity to be a part of a professional production, gain valuable performance experience, make new friends and have a lot of fun!

Unsuccessful applicants we hope will also enjoy the audition experience and learn from it to come back and have another go next year!
