HAVE you ever fancied treading the boards and performing on the big stage?

If so, now’s your chance as an appeal goes out for amateur actors to come forward and audition for a major performance of Sweeney Todd, which will take place at Lakeside Arts Centre, the University of Nottingham’s public arts centre.

Both amateur and professional actors of all ages are being urged to come along to the open auditions, to be held on March 16-17.

Shona Powell, director of Lakeside, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for anyone to come forward to be in with the chance to star in a brilliant new production.

“There are a large range of roles available and we’re really excited to host the auditions as well as stage the production here at Lakeside.”

Open auditions will take place at Lakeside between 12–5pm on both days.
