Director Guy Pascall said: "It's going to be a fantastic production and what an amazing opportunity for a local actress to gain valuable professional experience in the panto and to start them off on their own glittering career."

Hopefuls need to bring a song of their choice on backing track to sing to the audition panel. They will then be given some acting sections from the script of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs to perform in front of the pantomime’s creative team. Auditionees will need to be available all day on Sunday 2nd July.

The successful candidate must also be freely available from 27th November - 7th December for rehearsals and then from December 8 to 31 for the performances. The role is contracted, meaning the performer will be paid for their work on the show.

Enchanted Entertainment will be bringing 43 spellbinding performances of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs to Tyne Theatre and Opera House from 8th – 31st December. The pantomime will feature a fantastic live band and be packed with a host of top stars, including Britain’s Got Talent Winner Matt Pagan from Collabro as ‘Prince’ and the return of hilarious Geordie panto comics Charlie Richmond as ‘Muddles’ and Lewis Denny as ‘Herman the Henchman’.

Producer Jezz Weatherall said: “Snow White is probably the best pantomime part for an actress to play and we'll be looking for someone that can sing, dance and act to a very high standard. As well as a fantastic star cast, the panto will also include the songs ‘Heigh Ho’ and ‘Whistle While You Work’ from the much-loved movie”.

Enchanted Entertainment are assembling an amazing cast and planning some spectacular pantomime magic to ensure Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs will be a brilliant family pantomime with plenty of audience participation, fantastic sets and costumes, and of course jokes galore for all the family!
