[ Noticeboard: Live in Lambeth or Southwark? Can you sing? ]

After 2 years on Walkabout the Young Vic Theatre Company
will finally be returning to its newly redeveloped home on
The Cut this autumn.
 
Shortly the theatre will be holding auditions for the
opening production and would like you to help to find some
of the stars of the show.
 
Do you live in Lambeth or Southwark?
Can you sing?
Do you want to perform at the Young Vic theatre?
 
The Young Vic is looking forward to restablishing itself at
the heart of the local community. Therefore auditions will
be open to any Lambeth or Southwark resident aged 8-12 and
18-80 years old. Participants do not need any experience of
performing - they just need to be able to sing.

Auditions will take place in early July and promise to be a
fun and friendly affair.

To book an audition please contact Jennie for the young
people's choir (ages 8-12) on 020 7820 3365 or Gabby for the
adult choir (aged 18-80) on 020 7820 3367.
