British TV and stage company Panto Live are holding auditions around the world for a chance to be part of a British pantomime staring Harry Potter actor Chris Rankin who played Percy Weasley in many of the films.

Cinderella Live is the world’s first fully interactive live pantomime (Musical Christmas Show) to be beamed into people’s homes on the internet across the world this year.

Audiences globally will get to Boo, Laugh, Cheer, Clap, Shout “Behind You” and even sing along with the cast in this ground-breaking fully interactive British Pantomime (Musical Christmas Show) performed live.

Young people from around the globe are being invited to audition for a chance to appear in the show.

“We wanted to give some young people the opportunity of being in the ensemble and appearing in the Cinderella Live” Said director Daniel Coll.

“This production is available around the world and we felt it right to make it as international a cast as possible. The selected winners will record everything from home and be shown in the live performance of the shows.

Chris Rankin who will play the Fairy Godfather in the new production said: “I am over the moon to be working on this innovative international show that will give the audience the feeling that they are sitting in the theatre itself as the actors perform Cinderella live!”

Young people age from 11 to 16 are being invited to audition with parental permission.

“Auditioning for the show is simple ” said producer Lianne Collinson

Just send an MP4 video singing a few lines and a chorus of any song to [email protected] or visit the website www.pantolive.com for further information.

In this live show the audience take control of many of the usual reactions a theatre audience would. By pressing buttons that trigger the sounds in the studio, they get to interact with the actors as if they were in the theatre itself.

Co-Producer and director of photography Ben McNeill said: “This will be a very special occasion and a new way of working in the future. This production will look and sound wonderful on phones, tablets, computer devices and be stunning when cast to a TV.”

“There is something for all the family!” said director Daniel Coll.
