Jermin Productions are set to provide yet another season of magic and adventure with their latest innovative and festive production starring Dick Whittington and his feline friend Tom Tom the navigating cat!!

With the UK’s Panto season coming into full swing, the brother and sister duo Mark and Nia are on the hunt for an ensemble of Senior dancers, (both male and female) to make up a fantastic Ensemble as well as seeking a young vibrant troop of juvenile performers to take to the stages this Christmas and New Year alongside a dynamic cast littered with familiar faces.

Auditions for the production will be led by West End performer and co director of the company, Nia Jermin who is hoping to find lots of characterful and expressive performers at the auditions, is also looking for dancers who can execute choreography with style and performance. Nia who has vast experience in both performing and choreography says, “We are so excited to include local talent and to make our Pantomime about the community. The feedback from previous productions is hugely and Mark and I are delighted to be back in Wales this year. Our Pantomime contains a very colloquial script, which we write ourselves, which is inundated with local references, which proved to be very popular last year. “

“Auditions will take place on Monday 5th September at the Princess Royal Theatre Port Talbot on the 12th September at Swansea Unitarian Church Hall and on Monday 26th September at Theatr Brycheiniog“ added company director Mark Jermin.

This year Jermin Productions are hoping to find young and exciting performers, “We are open to everyone in the area who wants to audition for a role” says Nia.

With stage schools based throughout South Wales,Mark Jermin is very aware of the quality of talent based within the surrounding areas of each Theatre saying ‘It’s important for us to utilise the local talent we have in each area , and allow these young performers to thrive on the opportunities we can offer them.”

“It really is going to be a spectacular Pantomime this year!” says Nia Jermin.

You will be able to see the Pantomime cast live in action, where they will be taking over the streets of Carmarthen for a day filled with nothing but magical mayhem, slap-stick silliness and musical entertainment guaranteed to provide fun for all the family!
