Strong singing ability is essential, as well as classical training in Shakespeare is a plus (but not mandatory). Actors should be able to speak with a turn of the century Cockney accent. All cast members should be able to ‘move well’. There is one specific dancer role (male, ballet concentration). There is also a need for adult male actors who could pass for a fourteen-year-old boy.
