Search for John & Michael Auditions

On at the Regent Theatre


  • Press release

The search is now on to find talented local child actors to play the roles of John and Michael Darling in this year’s magical family pantomime Peter Pan at Ipswich Regent Theatre.

Panto producers Enchanted Entertainment are on the lookout for male child actors aged 8-13 who live in the area to star alongside West End legend Darren Day, who is playing panto baddie Captain Hook and Dancing on Ice Finalist and former EastEnders actor Matt Lapinskas, who is playing Peter Pan.


Male child actors aged 8-13 need to attend the auditions taking place on Saturday 29th October from 11am at Ipswich Regent Theatre with no pre-registration necessary. Hopefuls will be given some acting sections from the script of Peter Pan to perform in front of the pantomime’s creative team. The successful candidates must also be available for rehearsals on Sundays throughout November and December as well as from 16th – 31st December for the actual pantomime performances.


Producer Guy Pascall said:

Peter Pan is going to be an amazing Christmas production and what a brilliant opportunity for local male child actors to perform in the pantomime alongside such a stellar professional cast. The panto will also include some fantastic flying sequences, which of course, John and Michael Darling will be a part of as they fly off to Neverland”.


Enchanted Entertainment will be bringing 24 spellbinding performances of Peter Pan to Ipswich Regent Theatre from 16th – 31st December 2022. The pantomime will feature an awesome live band and be packed with a host of top stars, including West End legend Darren Day as Captain Hook, Dancing on Ice Finalist and ‘Anthony Moon from EastEnders’ actor Matt Lapinskas as Peter Pan, the return of hilarious panto comic Mike McClean as Smee as well as ‘Ipswich’s Own’ Eliza Walker as Wendy and singing sensation Giselle Byron as Tiger Lily.


Enchanted Entertainment are assembling an incredible cast and planning some spectacular pantomime magic to ensure Peter Pan will be a dazzling family Christmas show with plenty of audience participation, stunning sets and costumes, and jokes galore for all the family!
