The Pasadena Playhouse has announced that auditions for dancers 8-13 years old will be held on Sunday, October 2 in its Carrie Hamilton Theatre for this year’s Panto at The Playhouse production of A CINDERELLA CHRISTMAS. Registration will open at 10:00 a.m. and the auditions will be led by Kayla Radomski of “So You Think You Can Dance.”
Dancers auditioning for A CINDERELLA CHRISTMAS are encouraged to wear comfortable clothes and bring plenty of water. Rehearsals will begin November 19, and no school will be missed for those dancers cast in the production as rehearsals will be conducted as an after school activity.
A CINDERELLA CHRISTMAS will have a gala opening night December 8, 2016 and play through January 8, 2017 at The Pasadena Playhouse. Panto at The Playhouse, now in its fifth year, has become a “must do” holiday tradition for Southern California residents.
Returning from last year’s Panto at The Playhouse production of PETER PAN AND TINKER BELL – A PIRATES CHRISTMAS will be director Bonnie Lythgoe (“So You Think You Can Dance”), choreographer Spencer Liff (Emmy nominee “So You Think You Can Dance”) and musical director Michael Orland (“American Idol”). The book is by Kris Lythgoe, scenic and costume design by Lythgoe Family Panto, casting by Becky Lythgoe.
Known for their creativity and involvement in television hits “American Idol” and “So You Think You Can Dance,” the Lythgoes are dedicated to bringing theatre that the entire family can enjoy. Based on the Grimm fairytales and others, each story has been modernized with topical scripts for parents and well known pop songs for kids. A Panto is interactive holiday fun for all ages, and A CINDERELLA CHRISTMAS will feature comedy, magic, dancers from “So You Think You Can Dance” and contemporary music from Taylor Swift to The Bee Gees.
The Pasadena Playhouse is located at 39 South El Molino Avenue, Pasadena, CA 91101. If you have a talented young dancer in the family, this may be his/her chance to shine!
