Northumberland Theatre Company is looking for a trainee to play the Princess in its Christmas touring show 'The Princess and the Goblin.'
'The Princess and the Goblin', written by by George MacDonald, adapted by NTC's Karen Hirst and directed by Louis Roberts, tells the story of Princess Irene who is to be the bride of the goblin king's son—but unfortunately he hasn't actually asked her yet.
It’s an adventure about the goblin’s attempts to steal away the princess and her success in avoiding them, with a lot of help from Curdie, the miner's son, and her mysterious great-great-grandmother, whom no-one else can see...
It’s a story about growing up, making friends and the importance of family, with song, dance and some fun along the way told in NTC's fast-paced, physical style.
The Princess and the Goblin contract runs from 6 November 2017 until 21 January 2018. Accommodation supplied. Paid position. Auditions for the part of the Princess will be taking place at the company’s studio theatre at The Alnwick Playhouse on Monday 7 August, with the deadline for applications being Monday 31 July.
Successful applicants will need to prepare two contrasting speeches and an unaccompanied song.
