Young stars needed for spectacular

Young singers and ballet dancers are to be given the chance to perform in one of this year’s most popular seasonal musical events — starring and directed by one of Northern Ireland’s top singing talents.

The Music Box — A Christmas Extravaganza is a colourful and festive show running this winter, designed to get families in the mood during the run-up to the Christmas holidays.

Belfast-born singer, performer and director Peter Corry is the man behind the brand new version of the show.

He’s looking for male treble singers between the ages of eight and 12 along with young female ballet dancers between eight and 11. He said: “We are auditioning on October 19 up at the Theatre at the Mill in Newtownabbey where the production is being staged.

“With a cast of over 100 each night, we need lots of stars.

“Two of the important ingredients are the young ballet dancers that take part, and we also look for a boy treble each night — performing some of the best loved classics like Walking In The Air”.

He believes this show, now in its third year, is a “feelgood family night out”.

“It’s a great family night out and a change from the usual pantomime at Christmas time.

“A good way of getting into the Christmas spirit.”

The Music Box — A Christmas Extravaganza is back by popular demand for 10 performances running from December 7-17.

Those interested in auditioning can contact 028 9042 8711.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant


It's difficult to deal with a highly competitive colleague. Every time you submit work, they try to find ways to outperform you. Although you have no interest in pitting your talent against theirs, this other person thinks very differently. Ignoring them won't be possible. A good way to disarm this pest is to invite them out for coffee. Describe what you've observed and ask for a truce. Irrational people are often thrown off balance when their behaviour is addressed in a direct manner.More
