This is an adult panto, for over 18’s only, and you must be comfortable with the use of rude and crude language. No material is written with the intention of causing offence, the intention is purely to make audiences laugh! You must be comfortable with making fun of current affairs and news stories.

The overall style for the music in the show is commercial pop/contemporary musical theatre so please can audition song choices reflect this.

The venue is a 60-seater venue.

To apply:

Email with what character you are applying for and a link to your Spotlight.


Casting breakdown:

We are looking for a diverse cast of performers to make up the company.

Dumb Blow

A young elephant (or half human half elephant) with large ears and a trunk. Desperate to find some purpose in life and not feel like such a freak. A bit of a silly billy character, and innocent.

Gender not important.

Madame Sveti (Svetlana) Minge

Panto Dame, Ukrainian, Dumb Blow’s loving and supportive mother who had an affair with Jumbo the elephant and Dumb Blow was the offspring.

Accent not important.


Ringmaster Vladimir Putin

A cunning, sarcastic and evil Russian circus ringleader/emcee who exploits Dumb Blow’s abilities for profit. Secretly wants to mimic his uncle Putin’s (Russian Leader) invasion of Ukraine but has decided to start with Guildford.

Accent not important.

Gender not important.

Firkov the Clown

Love interest, who has always had a fascination with Dumb Blows trunk and what they

could do with it. Bullied by Ringmaster Putin, but witty and sharp-tongued and helps

Dumb Blow gain confidence.

In the style of Harley Quinn.
