Applicants should be aged eight to 18 years of age.

Company director Neil Hopson said: “We would be delighted to see lots of young people auditioning.

“The successful cast will have the opportunity to work with an experienced director, choreographer and voice coaches who have many years of knowledge and skills in the theatre industry.

“They will also experience Ariel’s unique way of working which will really challenge and develop their skill, whilst making new friends and having a great time”

He added: “Ariel has a long history of producing high quality musicals and plays and has received praise and acclaim for their productions which have included Miss Saigon, Oliver!, We Will Rock You and plays such as History Boys, DNA and The Edelweiss Pirates.

“All applicants will be very welcome at the audition which will be held at Burgess Hill Academy.
