Wolf’s Child will take to the stage in the grounds of Felbrigg Hall, near Cromer, next May - and the festival is now looking for people to star in the outdoor spectacle being created by theatre makers WildWorks. The audience will be transported into a world of shape-shifting animals and humans, and the festival needs people to take part in three different parts of the show.

Lis Jennings, the festival’s head of communications, said: “Wolf’s Child is going to be the event of the festival. It is going to be a really immersive event for the audience. It is this really fantastical, grown-up fairytale with lots of magical transformation. People will start off outside Felbrigg Hall and be taken into this strange world.”

About the roles they are looking to cast, she said: “We are looking for girls aged one to 16 who will play the main heroine through a scene that will last about 15 minutes and show her growing from a child to an adult.

“We also need women aged 17 and over who will form a chorus and take part in the whole story, and we are looking for craftsmen who work with wood who will animate part of the route between the scenes.”

She said the roles were open to people both with and without previous theatre experience.

Rehearsals will start from early April and the show will be performed from May 5 to 23. Performers will not be required to take part in every single show but need to be available for the majority of the time.
