Lancaster Grand


Lancaster Footlights auditions are open to anyone. You do not need to become a member until cast. If not stated otherwise they are held at the Grand Theatre on St Leonardgate. (Please go to the Stage Door and ring the bell or knock loudly). Experienced actors or beginners are all welcome.  We also welcome anyone who wishes to help backstage rather than "tread the boards" this space!  If you are interested in helping with set, props or costumes, why not come along and watch auditions and meet the team.
