Banjo is now being turned into an enhanced e-book and animation, and we are looking for the perfect narrator to tell Banjo’s story!
We are hosting auditions at the New Vic theatre in Stoke-on-Trent and are looking for all members of the public to audition. No experience is necessary, just a passion for story telling… parents, grandparents, actors, and teachers – get applying, this is your chance to make your dream come true!
To audition at the New Vic theatre please first post a video or voice clip of you reading a short extract from Banjo on to the Banjo: The Voice Facebook page and we will be in touch. Silly voices, pig noises and enthusiasm are encouraged! Here’s the extract….
Banjo was a lovely pig whose tail was pink and short.
And early in the morning, he’d greet you with a snort.
When he got excited, his trotters used to fly...
from paddock to the meadow, from the farmhouse to the sty.
Now Banjo wasn’t greedy, he’d share his swill at the trough.
He didn’t barge or push or shout but politely stand and cough “Excuse me, my fellow pigs, but could I have a go?”
The other pigs would stand and stare and snort together... NO!
