Autumn Term & January 2023 Production – PETER PAN

We are extremely excited to confirm our return to Telford Theatre in January 2023 with a production of Stiles & Drewe’s ‘Peter Pan: A Musical Adventure’. This will be the first time that the Stiles & Drewe musical has been performed at Telford Theatre. The show will be rehearsed with a professional production team in our studios in Ketley and performed with a live orchestra. This will also be the first time that TACT will fly! The show is for performers in Year 4 - adult. New members are very welcome.

Auditions and Rehearsals

Auditions are on Saturday 17h September from 12:30pm to 5pm at The Arts Centre Telford, Holyhead Road, Ketley, TF1 5AN and places must be booked in advance to allow preparation of our studios and materials. All performers who attend the audition will have a place in the production. The auditions will be used to cast the production. Rehearsals will be at The Arts Centre Telford from 12:30pm-4:30pm on Saturdays.

Performers do not need to prepare anything for our ‘Peter Pan’ auditions on 10/09/22 – all material will be taught during the session. You should wear TACT uniform, which is now required for all rehearsals. If you do not have uniform yet, you should wear black clothing that you feel comfortable moving in and you can order uniform from our website in time for the first rehearsal. The link to this part of our website can be found here.

The show will be performed at Telford Theatre, Oakengates, Telford, TF2 6EP on Saturday 28th January and Sunday 29th January 2023 with shows at 1pm and 7pm on each day. Tickets for the show will cost £16.50 each and will be available on the theatre website.
