Open auditions for new Ballroom play at Eastbourne Theatres

09 May 2016

Calling all ballroom dancers to the Winter Garden floral hall!

Eastbourne Theatres open auditions for Kiss Me Quickstep ensemble

Eastbourne Theatres are offering a fantastic opportunity to dance your way into an exciting professional production this summer, with open ensemble auditions for new ballroom drama Kiss Me Quickstep. Auditions originally planned for Sunday 22 May have now been postponed. However interested individuals are still encouraged to e-mail for a pre-registration form. 

People aged 16+ years with any dance experience (ballroom dance experience is not required), are invited to audition to take part in this extraordinary show. Eastbourne Winter Garden Floral Hall will be transformed into an atmospheric theatre-in-the round to present this heart-warming play set against the backdrop of the Blackpool National Ballroom Dance Championships in Blackpool’s own Winter Garden. 

Those successful will have the opportunity to work in Eastbourne with the creative team from New Vic theatre, Newcastle-under-Lyme and then appear in several dancing scenes with the professional cast. A contribution to expenses will also be paid.

Anyone auditioning will need to ensure they can be available for rehearsals 2-3 days during weekends in June and then for 2-3 days and evenings in mid-July.  They will also need to be certain they are available for all the performances of Kiss Me Quickstep (29 July–17 August) as advertised on the Eastbourne Theatres website HERE

Interested individuals should email theatresmarketing@eastbourne.gov.uk for a pre-registration form.
