DWARFS

NB THE DWARFS CAN BE ADULTS PROVIDING NOT TOO TALL

BRAINY (D0C)

Has 40 lines and is quite bossy and the one who is in charge. He makes sure everyone is doing what they should be at all time

SMILEY (HAPPY)

Has 18 lines and is the one who always happy and smiling, nothing gets him down.

DOZY (DOPY)

Has 15 lines and is quite silly. Always messing about and getting into trouble.

GRUMBLEY (GRUMPY)

Has 17 lines and is very grumpy, he never has a good word to say, he is moan moan moan.

BLUSHFUL (BASHFUL)

Has 10 lines and gets embarrassed easily, especially when Snow White comes to the house. He will hide behind people.

SNOOZY (SLEEPY)

Has 7 lines and spends a lot of time asleep. He will yawn quite a bit and will nod off at regular intervals.

SNIFLES (SNEEZY)

Has 16 lines and is the one who always sneezes. He may well speak through his nose, I guess he suffers from permanent hay fever.

All of the DWARFS must be good character actors. No singing required but will need to be  comfortable dancers/movers  as will have a routine in the mine. Although not large parts very important and we will develop them accordingly.

7 GUEST APPEARANCES THROUGHOUT – These are a couple of  lines only.

Peter Pan, Tinkerbell, Captain Hook, Cinderella, Prince Charming + 2 Ugly sisters.

They will enter quite randomly. Their entrance will stop dialogue, they will have a few lines with cast. The idea is that they will be asked by panto cast( who’ll encourage audience to join them) by saying each time  “GET OFF YOU’RE IN THE WRONG PANTOMIME”  Must deliver lines confidently.

DANCERS – I would like 6-8 but they must dancers as the routines will need to be picked up quickly.

CHORUS – I would like quite a few, you cannot do shows without a decent CHORUS.

NB rehearsals that involve young people/adults will be on a Sunday . If called mid week you will be gone by 8-8.30.

The two Wednesdays before the show will be on the stage ALL will be needed. I will do ACT 1 the first Wednesday and ACT 2 on the second. You should be gone by 9.30.
