Palace Theatre Manchester Creative Learning

Following the fantastic success of our production of last years Footloose, we are delighted to announce West Side Story as our Stage Experience show for 2015!

This year we are opening this opportunity to anybody between the ages of 11 - 24 years (ages taken as of 3 August 2015)

Come and be in America this summer at the Palace Theatre Manchester.

Stage Experience is an exciting two week project which takes place in the summer. It gives all budding actors, singers and dancers the chance to experience what it is like to work on a professionally run production. The cast / crew have just two weeks to create the production - rehearsing everyday, building the set, sourcing the props and making the costumes! All stage experience applicants will work with a professional production team and get to perform on the famous Palace Theatre stage in front of an audience.

Auditions will be held at the Opera House on:

Ages 11-15  
09.30 - 12.30
25/04/2015

Ages 16-24
13.30 - 17.00
25/04/2015

The ages above are for the age you will be on 3 August 2015. So if you are 15 now,
But by 3 August 2015 you will be 16, please come to the afternoon session

Principal Call Backs will be on a separate audition date - 26 April 2015.
(Please keep both audition dates free)

  • Please arrive at the main foyer entrance, wearing comfortable clothes.
  • Refreshments will not be provided.

  • Applicants do not need to be stage trained - this is an open audition for everyone to take part
  • Parental supervision is not required - please bring a mobile phone (which must be silenced during the auditions) with you so you are able to contact someone to collect you after your audition has finished. Please note that only those people who are auditioning are allowed inside the auditorium
