  1. hello – do you have any contacts for the auditions – my daughter auditioned in Birmingham and was told she was successful in gaining a part but we have heard nothing since 🙁 she asks everyday if I’ve had an email but as the show dates are getting closer hope is fading so wondered if there was an email or contact I could have please? many thanks

    • Hi Amy! You must have stumbled across a very old article – these particular auditions took place last year. We don’t have details of other Peter Pan auditions at the moment but I’m sure if you have a look around the web you will find casting calls for other stage shows.
