The search is on for four children from South Yorkshire to join the cast of a major new adaptation of the musical Made in Dagenham.

The acclaimed West End show, based on the true story of the Ford Motors sewing machinists’ strike of 1968, is receiving its regional premiere at the Lyceum Theatre in Sheffield in November.

Now, the STOS Theatre Company is looking for two boys and two girls to share the roles of the heroine’s two children.

A spokesman for the theatre group said: “Director Mark Feakins needs two boys who should look between nine and 11-years-old and be no taller than 140 cm.

“Two girls are also wanted who need to look between six and eight-years-old and be no taller than 120 cm.

“All four should be able to speak with an Essex accent and the boys should be confident singers.”

Auditions will take place on Wednesday, September 21, between 7pm and 8pm at Parkwood Academy in Shirecliffe.

The children will then be needed for specific rehearsal dates and will share performances at the 1, 100 capacity Lyceum between Tuesday, November 15, and Saturday, November 19.

Show times are 7.15pm each day with the addition of a Saturday matinee performance at 2pm.

To register interest in your child auditioning and to receive further information about the auditions please email or call STOS Theatre Company secretary, Judy McMurray, at rjmcmurray@talktalk.net or ring 0114 236 2430.

Show prices range from £13 to £23 and are available online at www.sheffieldtheatres.co.uk
