A youth theatre company is holding its latest round of auditions this weekend.

Jelly Theatre (pictured), whose members joined Alfie Boe on stage at the Liverpool Echo Arena as part of his recent tour, are looking for 10 to 19-year-olds to sign up for the main company, as well as five to nine-year-olds for its kids division.

Auditions take place from 11am for the senior group, with auditionees needing to text their name and age to 07701 031116 to confirm a slot.

Kelly Hancock, from Jelly, said: “They will need to prepare a verse and a chorus from any musical theatre song, and a short monologue to perform which will show off their vocal ability and acting skills. Any dancers will have to learn 
choreography on the day.

“Anyone interested in the kids division can just attend a free taster session from 10am to 11am on the day, and will be assessed as they take part.”

The workshop and auditions take place at Jelly Theatre’s base at The Boathouse Youth Centre on Lytham Road.

Anyone interested, but 
unable to attend, can also contact Kelly for more information.

* Troyka bring their ‘experimental’ take on the Hammond organ trio sound to Lancashire this weekend. Featuring Kit Downes (once Mercury nominated in his own right) on Hammond/synths, Chris Montague on guitar/loops and Josh Blackmore on drums, Troyka is far more than the sum of its parts. They’ll be showcasing their third studio album, Ornithophobia, marking five years of musical experimentation, with influences drawn from the likes of Tim Berne, Aphex Twin, Deerhoof, Albert King and Flying Lotus. Catch them live at Morecambe Hothouse on Saturday night.
