The Arcadians Theatre Group is a Musical Theatre Group therefore the types of shows that ACT perform are Musicals.

We can have a cast of up to 50 children ranging in ages from 6 -16.  We put on two shows a year usually in May and October. We break for the summer and return back when School resumes in February.  We mainly rehearse every Saturday at the Miner’s Lamp Theatre between 1 – 4pm but this does change throughout the year.

The current production team includes:

Director – Janne-Maree McNeice

Producer – Tina Wallace

Musical Director – Val Hull

Choreographer – Pauline Darrand/Young

ACT Audition Information

INFORMATION NIGHT – Thursday 11th October 2018 @ 7pm

 OPEN AUDITION DAY  – Saturday 13th October 2018

Auditions will be held at the Miners Lamp Theatre with the Production Team. Parents/carers can wait in the foyer.

Please arrive at least 10 mins before audition time.

There are limited places available for ACT. We are mainly looking for children between 8 and 14 years old.

Decisions will be made as soon as possible and given by email. Each audition is discussed and the decisions made by the Production Team are final. No correspondence will be entered into.

Each audition time will be 6 minutes approximately. We might have to stop your child mid audition. This is no reflection on how your child has done. It is about time management.

The audition time slots will be available at the information night.


Your child will need to prepare for their ACT Audition

  1. A song from a Musical. We will have a speaker and CD player for them to play their backing track. The backing track has to have no vocals on it. Please pick the best section of the song. It is ok to start in the middle as a lot of songs do start slowly and build.
  2. A short Monologue. Please make this under 2 minutes in length.
  3. Dance. Your child can either prepare a short dance with or without musical accompaniment or our choreographer will teach them a short dance/a few steps to see how your child can dance and learn moves.

You can make contact with the Arcadians Childrens Theatre by emailing the Producer
