THE search has begun to find a talented actress to take the title role in Cinderella.

AJ Productions are looking for a local leading lady to star at The Garden Rooms at Tennants in Leyburn for this year’s pantomime.

Director Jacqueline Turnbull said: “We are big supporters of local talent and this is a fabulous opportunity for a local, budding actress to gain experience within our professional team so if the shoe fits we would love to meet you.”

Last year’s production of Jack and the Beanstalk was the first one to be hosted by the venue, attracting actors such as Coronation Street’s Les Battersby and CBBC actress Mia McKenna-Bruce.

Applicants must email for more information and to book their slot at the audition on Sunday, April 15, from 11am at Tennants, with recalls the same day.
