Be a part of the New Wolsey Theatre’s Production of Once

2 May 2018 News Download the full press release

Would you like the chance to be part of a production at The New Wolsey Theatre?

 We have the opportunity for two children to play Ivanka in Once this Autumn!

Once tells the unforgettable story of a Dublin street musician and a funny Czech woman, drawn together by their shared love of music.

As they assemble a band from her wild Czech family and his quirky Irish mates, the craic grows, the music flows and they fall slowly in love. The ensemble of actor/musicians play their instruments live on stage, in a dynamic show that steals your heart. If you ever imagined Ed Sheeran writing a musical, this is probably what it would sound like.

Once is about what happens when you take chances and go for your dreams.

Winner of eight Tony Awards® in 2012, including BEST MUSICAL.

A New Wolsey Theatre and Queen Theatre Hornchurch production.

We are looking for two girls, who look between the ages of 5-7 years old to play the daughter of “Girl”. There will be two children cast who will alternate throughout the run.

Production dates:

Thursday 6 September – Saturday 22 September 2018, with matinees on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

 Rehearsal dates:

Rehearsals are currently TBC but may include Summer holidays, after school and weekend sessions until the production opens in September.
