AUDITIONS:
Dance House, Foley Street Thurs 5th and Fri 6th December (times to be arranged)

CAST REQUIREMENTS:
4 versatile actors (2 male 2 female) to play a number of roles each – Energy, physicality and ability to work in an ensemble essential. Improvisational skills, singing/musicality desirable. Ability to play a musical instrument a bonus. The production will employ ‘stage movies’, projection and puppetry to realise a magical theatrical journey for family audiences and will be presented in main-house venues.

THE PLAY:
You can’t trust the fairies. The fairies stole the baby and left the Ice Child in its place. This is the story of The Ice Child. He’s not like other children. He’s lost in a world that doesn’t understand and doesn’t welcome him. The Ice Child can’t be hugged, can’t be cuddled. He’ll melt. How do you love a child that can’t be touched? And what is love anyway – when you come right down to it? This is a tale of growing up different. It’s a fairy story, a story told by fairies about people. And it’s a love story – a story about love.
