Would you like the chance to be part of a production at The New Wolsey Theatre?
We are on the lookout for local Ballroom Dancers to feature in our upcoming production of Kiss Me Quickstep in Spring 2019!
The New Wolsey Theatre, Ipswich is looking for local community ballroom dancers of all ages (18+) to join our production. There are no gender restrictions (male-male, and female-female couples would be encouraged). Dancers will ideally be proficient in a range of Ballroom and Latin dances.
The Community Ballroom Dancers will feature in sequences throughout the production as the other competitors. Dance styles will include the jive, cha-cha, samba, foxtrot, and waltz.
You will have to audition to take part and require a good standard of dance, but you do not need to have any previous theatre experience.
This is an unpaid opportunity, but is a great opportunity to dazzle a live theatre audience with your talent, meet new people, and have lots of fun.
If you are interested in auditioning or if you have any questions please contact Rachel Fitzgerald, Creative Learning Administrator by phone on 01473 295930 or email here.
About the Show: Kiss Me Quickstep is a sequin-studded warm-hearted ballroom drama by Amanda Whittington, produced by Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch and New Wolsey Theatre Ipswich. Three young couples are striving for glory on the competitive dance circuit – having finally made it to Blackpool’s National Amateur Championships via the motorway hard shoulder. This bittersweet comedy reveals the backstage stories behind the fabulous frocks, fixed smiles and fake tan, looking at the real lives of those for whom dancing is everything.
