Whistle Down the Wind Principal Audition Dates will take place in May 2016

Based on the novel by Mary Hayley Bell and subsequent Richard Attenborough-produced film, Whistle Down the Wind follows the fortunes of a fugitive caught between the prejudice of adults and the innocence of the young.

Andrew Lloyd Webber and Jim Steinman, together with Patricia Knop and Gale Edwards (co-book writers with Andrew Lloyd Webber) reset the original story in Louisiana in 1959.

The emotive score combines hauntingly beautiful love songs and explosive rock music. The score contrasts the relentless influence of the modern world with the traditional values of the old days – something which the community at the heart of Whistle Down the Wind yearns to return to.

This stunning musical will be calling cast members during April and auditions for principal characters and children’s roles will take place at Beau Sejour Theatre on Sunday, 01 and Sunday, 15 May from 2.30pm.

Further information will be posted on the website during the coming months, including, details on how to join the ensemble.

The production will open on Monday, 14 November and run for six nights with curtain up at 7.30pm.
