Search for talented 10 year olds

First Published 17 April 2008, Last Updated 18 April 2008

To celebrate its tenth birthday, Kids Week is holding a special talent contest for talented 10 year olds. The competition, which is being held in association with Young Performer Magazine, will offer 50 budding performers the chance to take part in an audition workshop in London on Thursday 16 August.

If you are not 10, there is no need to panic – there are another 50 wild card places available, which will be offered to kids aged 5-16.

The contest is part of Kids Week Covent Garden, the official launch of the 10th anniversary of Kids Week on 16 and 17 August. The casts of some of the biggest musicals in the West End, including The Sound Of Music, Fame, Chicago, Wicked and Mary Poppins, will be performing in Covent Garden piazza, and there will be live Kids Week workshops on stage. In addition to this there will be a Drama Pavilion run by the Old Vic, a Singing and Dancing Pavilion run by West End professionals, make up demonstrations and theatre themed art activities in the Costume and Design Pavilion and even a special wibbly wobbly waiting room for babies and toddlers in the Oily Cart-run under-fives Pavilion. All of this will be totally free.

If you want to take part in the audition workshops then you must download an entry form from the link below and post the completed form back to the address provided. Places are strictly limited and must be booked in advance.

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.

While theatres are currently closed, various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows, including cancellations and rescheduled performances. Please check with the individual shows for details.
