Children's casting for The Boy in the Dress

We are looking for eight boys to perform in our new musical The Boy in the Dress, which opens in November.

We will be looking to cast eight boys to share the roles of Dennis and Darvesh in our brand new musical adaptation of David Walliams’ book The Boy in the Dress later this year.

  • The boys will need to be over 11 years old in September 2019 and no older than 13 years by March 2020.
  • There will be lots of singing, acting and dancing involved and the music is written for unbroken voices.
  • They will need to commit to rehearsals in London and performances in Stratford-upon-Avon from August 2019 until March 2020.
