Discover the real magic of storytelling this Christmas…

Journey with Sara Crewe as she travels from the freedom of a childhood in India to a boarding school in a cold dark corner of northern England. Just as she begins to build a brighter world for herself and her friends some devastating news arrives from home and her life takes a terrible turn.

Meanwhile, our storyteller, Ramdas, is on his way from faraway Shimla with a twist in the tale that could change everything. He must find the girl with a strong heart and a head full of wild imaginings before it’s too late.

Theatre by the Lake are excited to present a new adaptation of the children’s classic by Frances Hodgson Burnett (The Secret Garden). With aarray of memorable characters, original music and mesmerising puppetry, this truly magical tale is brought to life on stage. Enjoy a wonderfully uplifting story about the power of imagination and friendship with all the family this Christmas!

Youth Cast required

Theatre by the Lake is looking for three teams of 8 female identifying or non-binary young performers (24 people in total) to make up youth cast who play students at Miss Minchin’s Academy for Young Ladies, the girls’ school that Sara is sent to in England. These young performers will work alongside professional actors under the guidance of Director Liz Stevenson and Theatre by the Lake’s professional creative team. The roles will involve acting, movement, and some simple choral singing.

We are interested in hearing from young people aged 11 -14 years old.

Theatre by the Lake seek to cast performers who are representative of the world around us, and welcome applications from people of global majority, LGBTQI+, and those who identify as d/Deaf, neurodiverse, or living with a disability.
