Auditions for stage show

The Ambassador Theatre Group is giving young children throughout the country the chance to star in an acclaimed production of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s lavish musical South Pacfic, currently on a nationwide tour and due to visit the Theatre Royal, Nottingham, in May.

Local children are being sought to play the roles of Ngana and Jerome, the illegitimate children of Emile de Becque. Ngana (female) and Jerome (male) would need to be of a playing age between seven and 11 years, black, mixed-race Caucasian/black or similar dark skin tone, with some singing and movement skills.

The producers also need to find a female child to play Bloody Mary’s native helper, who would have the same skills and appearance as, and understudy both the roles of, Ngana and Jerome.

To audition for any of the three roles for the performances of South Pacific at the Theatre Royal, Nottingham, from May 29–June 9, an email with name, photograph, age and contact details should be sent to

Auditions will take place in the week of April 2 in Nottingham.
