Blackpool’s Winter Gardens is offering locals the chance to take part in the resort's Christmas spectacular, ELF The Musical.
Local schools, colleges, performing arts clubs and community groups are invited to become honorary elves and join Santa’s official choir for the 2022 Christmas season (December 15-26).
Groups of up to 100 performers will be invited for each show, with a different, successful group at each performance – so up to 24 different groups will be able to take part.
The chosen performers will sit in the stalls with their teachers or group leaders, free of charge, and be ready to join in the show on command.
Successful groups will be sent guide vocal tracks and song sheets in advance, then take part in a 30-minute rehearsal at the Winter Gardens with the show’s production team before their performance. Every performer will receive a Elf T-shirt and hat – and friends and family will receive a discount on tickets.
Groups are invited to submit a video vocal audition of no longer than four minutes duration (which can be created specially or from a recent performance).
This, with an application form, can be submitted here before September 30.
