You can’t call your week complete without one final roundup—join Beatlemania in a new play about the band’s Magical Mystery Tour, or play a part in a pantomime tour of “Cinderella.” You can also pick up some ongoing work in London if you can dance and sing.

“CINDERELLA” 
Carousel Theatre Company is currently casting an actor for a pantomime touring production of “Cinderella,” which will be performed at care homes and additional needs shelters. A male actor, aged 18–45 (25–45 if you don’t have your own car), is sought to play the cheeky and upbeat Buttons, as well as the dashing Prince Charming. Talent must be an excellent singer and mover, and also be a licensed car driver based in or around South West London. The role will require use of a puppet, but experience of puppetry is not required. Rehearsals will take place Nov. 27–28 and Dec. 3 with touring Dec. 5–23 (three 45-minute shows per day, excluding Sundays) in London. Pay is £1,200 for the run, including rehearsals. Apply here!
