Auditions are being held at The Anvil on Wednesday, June 28 at 5pm, but residents must make sure they have registered beforehand.

Auditionees will need to prepare and film a Disney song, and script which will be sent beforehand, which will be needed ahead of the audition. They will be taught a dance routine on the day, and should also be prepared to sing if asked on the day.
